For Undergraduate Students
The Mental Health Disparities Lab provides undergraduate psychology majors with a great opportunity to make use of the skills learned in Statistics (PSYC 2001) and Research Methods (PSYC 2050) courses. Although activities vary from semester to semester, research assistants will gain experience in many areas from entering and interpreting data in SPSS to going out in the community and recruiting participants. Due to our concentration on mental health in the Latino population of Milwaukee, researchers are encouraged to use any experience they have with the Spanish language; however knowing Spanish is not a requirement. Being a research assistant in this lab is a weekly commitment, and interested students should be able to continue to work towards this study for at least one academic year.
Felicia Mata-Greve is a first year graduate student in Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program at Marquette University. She graduated from Hope College in 2010 with a B.A. in psychology and Spanish. At Hope, worked in the EEG lab at Hope conducting research on the neural processing of metaphors. While her research interests are still quite broad, they include how acculturation, language acquisition, and various forms of racial or ethnic discrimination affect the mental health and well-being of Latinos in the United States.
