About Us

Culture and Mental Health Research Lab

Our research targets structural, interpersonal, and treatment factors to improve the quality of care for diverse populations. Our research addresses such questions as:

How much do patient-therapist differences affect therapy process and outcome? Or more specifically, what individual, interpersonal, and treatment factors are associated with positive treatment outcomes in cross-racial or cross-racial therapy? 

How do patients' express and negotiate their intersecting identities in the context of therapy?

The Culture and Mental Health lab is directed by Dr. Chang at the New School for Social Research--you can learn more about participating as a research assistant here.
