Research

Julie’s research interests include intersectional identities; gender roles, acculturation, and substance use in Mexican American adolescents; prejudice against LGBT’s, and HIV/AIDS outreach services. She views studying the gender roles-substance use relationship as a window into an important practical implication of gender and gender identity.  She is interested in conducting research to understand how acculturation interacts with family processes and the socialization of gender roles in Mexican American adolescents to increase or decrease the risk for substance use and psychological maladjustment.  She is also interested in developing theoretical ideas on acculturation as a process involving the intersections of multiple social identities, including those of ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and social class. Ultimately, she sees these lines of research leading to the development and testing of a culturally sensitive gender role-focused interventions to prevent adolescent substance use.  
Julie is also interested in exploring the negotiation of intersectional identities in LGBT individuals.  Such intersectional identities have often been viewed as multiple risk factors (“double jeopardy”), but she has come to see the potential of intersectional identities for empowerment and improved social/psychological functioning.  Currently, her research focuses on bridging the gap between HIV/AIDS outreach services at the university level and community level.

SOCW 3302 - Human Behavior and the Social Environment II (Micro)
This course explores the behavioral and social science knowledge related to the development of individuals and families through the life course (e.g., biological and social research evidence and the theories of Freud, Erikson, Piaget, and others).  In addition, theoretical perspectives that facilitate understanding of human behavior (e.g., Cognitive Theory, Feminist Theory, Social Learning Theory, Dynamic Systems Theory, the Ecosystems Perspective, and others) will be explored.  Students will explore (a) the role that culture and cultural identity play in human development and norms of behavior; (b) relevant concepts of genetics and neurobiology to facilitate understanding of human functioning at the biological level; and (c) the diversity of views which facilitate the professional social worker's understanding of class, culture, diversity, ethnic identification, oppression, populations-at-risk, race, sexual orientation, social and economic justice.
