David Rollock

Degree: Ph.D. Yale, 1989

Research Interests:

My interests include acculturation to American mainstream contact and cultural transition among ethnocultural minority group members, especially how their orchestration of emotional and behavioral resources affects mental health.

Current concerns on the Adjustment & Cultural Transition Lab (ACTLab) include:

  • basic emotions in interethnic contact
  • ethnic minority responses to to law enforcement contact
  • sources, patterns, and impact of acculturation and cultural transition
  • contributions of religion and spirituality to mental health
