Lene Jensen, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Hiatt School of Psychology
One line of Dr. Jensen’s research is in the area of moral development. This work takes a “cultural-developmental” approach, addressing how moral reasoning is both culturally and developmentally situated. Her work has included members of diverse religious communities in India and the United States. A second line of research addresses cultural identity development in the contexts of migration and global change. A current project with adolescents and their parents who have immigrated to the United States from El Salvador and India, examines their cultural identity development as well as ties between cultural identity and engagement with civil society, school, and family.
