Presenter: Ashleigh Kysar-Moon, Sociology, Anthropology & Criminology Join Assistant Professor Ashleigh Kysar-Moon for a discussion on diversity, child maltreatment, and mental health. Health disparities scholars describe the existence of a mental health paradox; specifically, when black adults have higher levels of stress exposure compared to whites, yet have better mental health outcomes. Whether such a paradox exists among black youth with a history of maltreatment in unclear. Professor KysarMoon will also discuss the role psychosocial resources play in post-hoc analyses for better mental health.
