Shalonda Kelly

Ph.D., Michigan State

Shalonda Kelly's primary research foci are couples and racial and cultural issues, which she investigates in the contexts of family, therapy, and substance abuse settings. She studies couples prevention, assessment, and therapy. She is involved in the understanding and measurement of racial constructs, such as Afrocentricity, racial identity, and biculturalism. Dr. Kelly seeks to understand the ways people of color are affected by experiences of racism and how racial and cultural perspectives affect individual, couple, and family adjustments. Dr. Kelly teaches child and family therapy and diversity courses and conducts couples and family therapy within a cognitive-behavioral and systems orientation. She has a background in urban studies and is interested in programs designed to have a positive impact on minority communities and families.
