Creating Change for Others... - Working to Educate, to Enlighten, and Empower the lives of many...
 
        Dr. Eugena Griffin pursued a Bachelor of Science degree (BS) in the field of General Psychology as an undergraduate at Morgan State University (MSU) in 1997.  During that time, Dr. Griffin began her interests in minority health research.  Specifically, she began studying the effects of racism on physiological outcomes, including galvanic skin responses, heart rate, and blood pressure among African American college students.  In 2008, she received the Ph.D. degree in Clinical-Community Psychology from the University of South Carolina (USC).  Dr. Griffin expanded her research interest and began studying coping typologies in response to racial stress among African American adults. 
   
        Since August 2010, Dr. Griffin has served as an academic.  January 2015, she was appointed as an Assistant Professor of Psychology, Behavioral & Social Science via the City University of New York (CUNY) system. She continues to provide instruction and mentorship to a diverse undergraduate student population.  Dr. Griffin obtained licensure as a Clinical Psychologist in the state of New York December 7, 2010.  As a Licensed Psychologist, Dr. Griffin provides comprehensive assessment and psychotherapy to impoverished and disenfranchised children, adolescents, and adults presenting mild to severe mental health outcomes.  Additionally, she continues to engage in community programming and minority health research as a means to further examine the racism-coping phenomena, in addition to developing interventions to counteract the maladaptive effects of racism in America. 
 
        Dr. Griffin’s overall objective is to use her training as a clinician, researcher, and community programmer to educate, empower, and develop programs for African American communities in various cities and states.  Thus, in addition to the above noted work, she has authored two books.  Her first book, titled, “Letters to the Black Community” (2012) combines her minority health research and clinical intervention within the Black community.  “Letters to the Black Community”, aims to educate individuals about the multitude of ways in which internalized oppression affects the Black psyche.  Not only does Dr. Griffin point out this dilemma, but she offers solutions to combat this phenomenon which is hoped to serve as a catalyst for Black community change.  The second book, “The Steps I Took” (2013), is a workbook for high school and college students.  It provides detailed strategic planning to guide students in pursuit of their next level of academia regardless of academic and/or career interest.  Note, the Steps I Took is also used to facilitate College Prep Workshops. Feel free to invite Dr. Griffin to your institution to facilitate a workshop for your youth.
