Dr. Leslie Anderson

Assistant Professor


My research broadly focuses on Black American familial processes and specifically, their processes of racial socialization. My scholarship is rooted in a commitment to social and racial justice and undergirded by Critical Race Theory. In my clinical work, I am intentional about practicing as a culturally responsive practitioner with underrepresented and underserved groups. I have 10+ years of experience providing community and home-based mental health services to impoverished and rural families in MS and GA.
