Event description

Description

The Forum Presenter, Dr. Angel Dunbar, is a postdoctoral associate in the African American Studies Department at the University of Maryland College Park. She is a Developmental Scientist whose research focuses on understanding the unique developmental challenges that children of color encounter and the family processes and individual factors that influence positive adaptation in the face of these challenges.

Part II in this series will focus on:

1. Black Pain, Black Joy, and Racist Fear: Supporting Black Children in a Hostile World

2. Parenting Skills to Build Resiliency in Children for Mental Well-Being and Personal Success

3. How to Connect with Culturally Competent Mental Health Services and Practitioners

Specifically, her program of research addresses the following: (1) the detrimental effects of racial/ethnic discrimination on the social-emotional, psychological, and academic outcomes of children of color, (2) the messages parents relay about race/racism and emotions in an attempt to mitigate these effects, and (3) children's individual protective factors such as emotional, behavioral, and physiological self-regulation and emotion understanding.
