Department of Psychology
- Dr. Enchautegui-de-Jesus received her MA and PhD in Community Psychology from New York University. She was a postdoctoral fellow with the NIMH’s Family Research Consortium III at the University of Michigan. Her research revolves around a core interest in the stressors that affect the mental and physical well being of people of low socioeconomic status, especially individuals and families of African and Latin American descent. Currently, her research activities focus specifically on stressors related to work and to the balancing act between work and family demands among women who juggle low wage jobs and children/adolescents at home. Furthermore, Dr. Enchautegui is interested in the coping mechanisms and resources women use and/or need to deal with these stressors and buffer their impact.
