Drawing Outside of the Lines

Drawing outside of the lines: Using intersectionality to advance behavioral health and foster resilience among LGBTQ+ communities of color

Presenter

Dr. Skyler Jackson (he/him) conducts research focusing on the ways individuals’ social identities (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation) shape their everyday lives and influence health and well-being. In particular, he is interested in how experiences of stigma—if not adequately coped with—interfere with psychological functioning and contribute to health disparities.


Event Details 

Delivered by Dr. Skyler Jackson (he/him), this virtual presentation will combine didactic discussions of theory, research, and clinical applications. The theoretical discussion will include a discussion of relevant frameworks of stigma and health, including minority stress theory, the psychological mediation framework, and intersectionality theory. The research discussed will include (a) feature novel mixed-methods, experience sampling study illuminating how daily events related to both one’s race and sexual orientation (i.e., intersectional experiences) are associated with day-to-day changes in psychological well-being and (b) overview recent clinical efforts to develop and test a group-based treatment to address intersectional stigma, mental health, and HIV risk among young gay and bisexual men of color. Behavioral health implications and future directions, including the applicability of results to clinical, community, and policy-level interventions will be discussed.
