Jacqueline Mattis University of Michigan, USA

Jacqueline S. Mattis, PhD,?is Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan. Her work examines the extent to which, and ways in which, religiosity and spirituality inform such positive psychological and prosocial outcomes as forgiveness, empathy, compassion, altruism, and community involvement among those who live with the challenges associated with urban life. A more recent line of work, conducted with collaborators Dr. Christine McWayne (Tufts University) and Dr. Linnie Green Wright (Boston College), examines how low-income, urban-residing?African American and immigrant?parents of preschoolers conceive of positive parenting. She is the co-author (with Fulya Kurter,?Bahçesehir University)?of two scholarly texts on culture and counseling from the experience of Turkish mental health practitioners. She received the Martin Luther King, Jr. Award at NYU, and of the Positive Psychology Young Scholars Award from the Templeton Foundation. She serves on the Editorial boards of?Spirituality and Psychology?and?Psychology of Women Quarterly.
