Because of my background in psychotherapy, I have a keen interest in the intersection of research and practice. Since October 2023, I have been working in the study titled "Racist Discrimination Experiences and the Mental Health of Adolescents: A Diary Study." My primary focus is on examining the relationship between the unequal treatment of adolescents and their self-harming and suicidal behavior. I am particularly interested in identifying resilience factors that can facilitate the implementation of targeted measures for effective preventive care for affected adolescents.
