Introduction
My research focuses on individuals from minority and/or stigmatized groups, and aims to understand the role of social context in the psychological distress of these populations. Thus, my research examines the interactions between social context, indicators of psychological distress, and cognitive, emotional, and behavioral variables. My work is based primarily on conceptual frameworks from clinical psychology and psychopathology in CBT, social psychology and health psychology.

Homosexuals are one of the most stressed groups of individuals (Lewis, Derlega, Griffin & Krowinski, 2003).
