OVERVIEW

The Research Colloquium Series focuses on new and emerging research methods, data-analysis techniques, and research about evidence-based practices. The Series highlights advances in social work research and other social sciences research to help health and human service professionals and organizations understand the complex needs of individuals, families, organizations, and communities. These events usually take place in Fall Semester (August to December) and Spring Semester (January to May).

Abstract: Dr. Nguyen's work is focused on minority aging and the life course. Her research is motivated by racial disparities in the burden of mental illness, especially for depression. One of the goals of her research is to explain why older African Americans bear an excess burden of depression relative to older non-Hispanic Whites and identify factors that will address this disparity.

May 11, 2018

Abstract: Ongoing political debates regarding immigrants to the United States often center around fears of violence and related antisocial behaviors. This presentation will overview a series of studies using national-level data on forms of violence and related antisocial behavior committed by first and second-generation immigrants compared to US-born Americans, and offer some compelling theories why concerns about immigrants seem to be out of step with what we know from national data.
