About the Event

 In this panel presentation and discussion, UW Faculty share their experience, research and insights on strengthening resilience in children and families, particularly in those facing adversity. Faculty will present their research advances, opportunities to learn from community partners, and lessons learned in our work in understanding children's and families' well-being in contexts where families are experiencing adversity, particularly in diverse communities. Faculty presentations will be followed by a panel and an opportunity for audience Q&A. 

The panel includes:

 

  
Stephanie Fryberg, Ph.D.,
Associate Professor of Psychology and American Indian Studies. Her research examines culture, race, social class, stereotyping, prejudice and educational attainment, as well as Native American/American Indian health.

 


Janine Jones, Ph.D.,
Associate Professor and Director of the School Psychology Program in the College of Education.  Her research focuses on multiculturalism and culturally responsive mental health interventions. Dr. Jones' work underscores that multiculturalism is a context for resilience that reduces the negative impact of life’s 
unavoidable stressors on the well-being of children and adolescents of color.

 

 
Lenna Liu, M.D.,
Professor of Pediatrics, Seattle Children’s and Odessa Brown Children’s Clinic. Dr Liu’s focus is on childhood obesity prevention and management, with an emphasis on addressing health disparities and integrating mindfulness and mindful eating.

 


Moderator: Liliana Lengua, Ph.D.,
Professor of Psychology and Director of the Center for Child and Family Well-being. Dr. Lengua's research focuses on children’s resilient and vulnerable responses to experiences of economic disadvantage and adversity, identifying protective factors that promote children’s social, emotional and academic competence in the face of adversity.
