Kathryn Ecklund, Ph.D., completed her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Biola University in 1994, and her dissertation was on the impact of acculturation on family functioning in first-generation Hispanic/Latino families. While on the faculty at George Fox University, Ecklund studied racial/ethnic identity development of Euro-Americans. While she was directing the psychology department and training institute at River Oak Center for Children, and on the faculty of the University of California, Davis, her scholarship focused on racial and cultural identity development in children and on best practices in culturally competent clinical service provision to diverse children and families. In addition, during her time on the faculties of the University of the Pacific and California State University in Sacramento, Ecklund studied stress and coping in Hispanic/Latino first-generation college students who are children of migrant workers. Since joining the faculty at Azusa Pacific, her scholarship has focused on the inclusion of faith in the consideration of diversity dynamics, diverse identity development, and diverse relationships among Christian college students.
