Building a Mindfulness Research Program that Centers the Experiences of African Americans


On April 23rd, the Clinical-Community program hosted a talk given by Dr. Watson-Singleton titled, "Building a Mindfulness Research Program that Centers the Experience of African Americans."

It was supported through the Psychology Diversity and Inclusion Committee's Anti-Racism Large Grant fund.

Dr. Watson-Singleton, an alumna of the Clinical-Community Psychology program, has focused her work on promoting the wellbeing of African Americans and adopting dialectical approaches to promote anti-racism.

Dr. Watson-Singleton discussed the trajectory of her research program, highlighting how she was able to develop this work over time, from her initial projects as a graduate student to her current grant-funded efforts as a junior faculty member.

All students in the department were invited, as well as, interested alumni. The event was shared via our Networking Page on LinkedIn. Please register to join if you are interested in similar events in the future.
