The Happiness and Well-Being Project will hold the third lecture in the Race and Well-Being Lecture Series as part of the Diversity Speaker Series at Saint Louis University from 7 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 25, in the Anheuser-Busch Auditorium, Cook Hall.
Shawn Utsey, Ph.D., professor of counseling psychology and interim chair of African American Studies at Virginia Commonwealth University, will give the lecture, “Advances in the Conceptualization and Measurement of Race-Related Stress.”
Utsey conducts research interests in two primary areas, both of which are related to the psychology of the African American experience. He is interested in understanding how race-related stress impacts the psychological and physiological health of African Americans. His other area of interest is the role of culture in coping and resilience among African Americans.
Free parking will be available at the Laclede Garage.
A reception will follow the talk.
