AACDR Visiting Scholar Talk: Dr. Gordon C. Nagayama Hall, 6/29/15


The Asian American Center on Disparities Research is pleased to welcome Dr. Gordon C. Nagayama Hall, Professor of Psychology and Associate Director of Research in the Center on Diversity and Community at University of Oregon, and former president of the Asian American Psychological Association (2009-2011).

Dr. Hall will present a talk on Monday, June 29, 2015, from 10:00-11:00am in 166 Young Hall on the UC Davis main campus. Dr. Hall’s talk is entitled, "Mapping the Intersection of Diversity and Psychological Clinical Science."

See below for a short synopsis of his talk:

There has been a sharp disagreement between those who advocate for fidelity of evidence-based interventions and those who advocate for cultural fit. A wide range of effect sizes has been reported in the meta-analyses of the effectiveness of culturally-adapted treatments. I will present a new comprehensive meta-analysis of 61 studies of culturally-adapted treatments involving more than 13,000 participants that provides strong support for the effectiveness of culturally-adapted treatments vs. other conditions.

Please feel free to forward this announcement to your colleagues, research staff, and undergraduate students/RAs planning to be in Davis this summer. 166 Young Hall has a capacity of 50 so there should be more than enough room for anyone interested to attend!
