Dawn X Henderson,Ph.D.
Dr. Dawn X. Henderson is the co-director of the Collective Health and Education Equity Research (CHEER) collaborative.
As the co-director of CHEER, I seek to engage in research that examines the role of community and school-based models that promote resilience and psychosocial skill development among Black and Latinx adolescents. My current research examines race-related trauma in the public education system and implications on psychological adjustment, well-being, and coping response. I employ qualitative and quantitative methodologies in systems level analysis in order to improve practices and promote prevention across communities and schools.
