My academic activities have focused on training culturally competent clinical psychologists
and developing culturally responsive mental health services for Native American communities
My teaching interests include: PSYC 460: Psychological Perspectives on Diversity;
PSYC 658: Serving the Diverse Community in Disaster; PSYC 779 Child Psychopathology;
PSYC 781: Child & Family Psychotherapy; PSYC 786: Seminar in Professional Development;
PSYC 701: Seminar in Ethics & Professional Issues
As a faculty member in the USD Disaster Mental Health Institute since 1993, I have
responded to numerous national and international disasters and crisis situations,
particularly in Native American communities. My work with tribes has focused on crisis
response team development, youth suicide prevention, community healing and empowerment,
and human resource development. I am skilled in both qualitative and quantitative
culturally competent methodology and have served as a research consultant to a number
of tribes or tribal groups. As I am a strong proponent of community-based participatory
research, my research activities tend to be tribal community-initiated projects--this
often includes community needs assessments and evaluation of tribal programs.
