RESEARCH AGENDA

My short-term research agenda includes the study the psychological and cultural influences of
health disparities in African-American women and girls, especially in rural, under resourced
communities. In particular I am interested in understanding the types of stressors, coping
resources, and social support for women and girls who have hypertension. Eventually, I would
like to contribute to the development of community outreach efforts that advocate quality and
culturally congruent health care in under resourced communities. In addition to health disparities,
my research agenda expands to the study of liberation psychology as related to clinical training
and practice, and to the teaching efficacy of counseling skills relevant to individuals from diverse
backgrounds.
                                                                         Dorienna M. Alfred       2
