Danielle Godon-Decoteau

Visiting Lecturer in Psychology and Education

Danielle Godon-Decoteau was trained in clinical psychology and is interested in the mental health and well-being of marginalized communities. One facet of Godon-Decoteau’s research explores the experiences of transracial international adoptees (i.e., people of color who were adopted from abroad by white European American families), which highlights the complexities of race, ethnicity and culture. Her other major area of research is on the relation between internalized racism and Asian American mental health, a largely neglected area in the field of psychology. Danielle utilizes both quantitative and qualitative methodologies in her research and hopes to produce scholarship that promotes social justice.
