Dr. Gonzalez is an Associate Professor of Psychology at California State University, Long Beach. She received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from San Diego State University/University of California San Diego and was a NIMH post-doctoral research fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles Semel Institute for Neuroscience & Human Behavior. Her areas of work focuses on (1) trying to understand the interplay of individual (cognitive bias, physiological stress response) and social (family, ethnicity) factors in the development and expression of internalizing problems, and (2) developing and improving culturally appropriate mental health services. She recently completed a study to see how college students respond in stressful situations, and what factors predict how they respond (e.g., parenting behavior, ethnicity, cognitive processes, anxiety levels).
