Eric Green, PhD
Post Doctoral Fellow
Dr. Green holds a Ph.D. in Clinical-Community Psychology and a master's degree in International Studies from the University of South Carolina. His research seeks to better understand (a) the destructive impact of political violence and forced migration on various levels of the social ecology and (b) the relationships between family and community-functioning and individual well-being. The ultimate objective of this research is to contribute to the development of an empirical base for designing, implementing, and evaluating ecologically-oriented, culturally-anchored, transformative interventions for communities experiencing or emerging from conflict and forced migration. As social ecological research and interventions in these settings remain at a formative stage, however, his work also involves the development and testing of different methodologies for assessing well-being and distress at multiple levels. His empirical approach includes mixed-methods research strategies that blend quantitative (e.g., household surveys) and qualitative (e.g., interviews, community narratives) approaches to inquiry. He is particularly interested in the potential role of technology in the development of new approaches to studying different levels of the social ecology.
