Bio/Research

Miwa Yasui is an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago’s School of Social Service Administration. Her areas of interest include cultural influences on developmental and familial processes such as ethnic identity development and ethnic-racial socialization, the examination of the culturally responsive assessments and interventions for ethnically diverse children and youth, intervention and prevention of problem behaviors among youth, and observational methodology.

Professor Yasui's research focuses on the influence of culture on development and family process in relation to psychopathology and mental health intervention. In particular, her research examines how multilevel cultural influences enhance or ameliorate the relationship between family processes and child psychopathology, especially among ethnic minority families. Her work applies the use of observational methods combined with surveys to study culturally specific developmental and familial socialization processes that are central to the adaptive development of ethnic minority children and youth.
