The foundation of Dr. Milstein’s work is the study of how beliefs are imbued in us through our cultural milieus. His bilingual (Spanish & English) research follows three paths:
Religion and Mental Health:
Implement prevention science models to facilitate the continuity of mental health care, through collaboration between clergy, clinicians and consumers.
Immigration & Psychological Resilience:
Identify variables that promote resiliency, in response to the developmental disruptions caused by migration.
Through interpersonal relationships the abstract ideas that are culture become material in the neurophysiology of the developing human brain.
