RESEARCH FOCI: Positive Youth Development, Cultural Competencies, Community Settings
Jackie Moses entered the FIU Clinical Science in Child and Adolescent Psychology Doctoral program in fall of 2015. Her major co- professors are Dr. Dionne Stephens and Dr. Stacy Frazier. She earned her B.A. in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Jackie’s research interests center on (1) integrating empirical literature, local knowledge and expertise of community partners and consumer stakeholders to maximize relevance and enhance health service delivery for families living in urban poverty; (2) understanding racial/ethnic minority health/educational disparities; and (3) identifying contextual and cultural protective factors that promote positive adaptation among adolescents experiencing adversities. Jackie has had clinical experience conducting individual treatment, group parent training in community settings, and psychoeducational assessments with African American and Latino children with disruptive behavior problems as well as with adolescents and families in the child welfare system. Currently, Jackie is working in collaboration with local Miami community-based youth programs examining factors facilitating adolescents and parent engagement.
