Personal profile

Jarrett Lewis is an assistant professor in the Counseling Psychology and Developmental Sciences divisions of the Department of Educational Psychology. He obtained a PhD in Clinical Psychology from DePaul University. Prior to coming to UIUC, he completed a postdoctoral fellowship in trauma psychology at Rush University Medical Center in the Section of Community and Behavioral Health.

Dr. Lewis' research agenda is centered on delineating the mechanisms through which Black/African Americans experience and recover from psychological trauma due to violence and racism. Specifically, he is interested in the development of culturally informed, school and community-based interventions designed to ameliorate the negative effects of violent and racial trauma and foster mental wellness and radical hope among Black/African American youth and young adults. Additionally, he has specific interests in exploring the relation of gender expression (i.e., masculinity) and racial identity to the adoption of healing practices among Black/African American boys and men in non-traditional clinical settings.

Dr. Lewis will be reviewing applications for Fall 2024 admission.
