Angela tells her story.
The Psychology Department sponsored an event on Adolescent Resilience on February 19th, 2019. Dr. Jennifer Lovell, Assistant Professor of clinical psychology, spoke about her recently published book, The “Troubled” Adolescent: Challenges and Resilience Within Family and Multicultural Contexts. Two local youth leaders were guest speakers at the event: Angela Soto Cerros and Jenaye Brelland. Both spoke about navigating challenges of adolescence and the developmental assets that have helped to support their empowerment and wellness. Dr. Lovell highlighted key themes and emphasized the importance of using a strength-based model and culturally-informed approach when working with young people.
