Acculturation, Diversity, and Psychopathology Team (ADAPT)

The Acculturation, Diversity, and Psychopathology Team (ADAPT) at the Southern Methodist University seeks to examine the impact of culture, ethnicity, and race on psychopathology and addictive behaviors. Our research focuses on minority mental health and health disparities. We are interested in cognitive, emotional, and sociocultural determinants of alcohol (mis)use and other mental health outcomes. The ultimate goal of our research is to inform clinical interventions that are most effective in alleviating distress and improving psychological functioning among people from diverse ethnocultural backgrounds.
