Filipinas with PhDs Series

So you've earned your PhD. FWN invites FWN members to share the many years they've spent in research and interviews and how they have successfully defended their dissertations.

"Culture Matters: an Enculturation Scale for Filipino Americans”

Cultural values and practices are important to assess when treating the health and well-being of Filipino/a/xs. Dr. Alicia del Prado published the first Enculturation Scale for Filipino Americans (ESFA) in 2010 to help meet the psychological needs of the Filipino community. The ESFA is a valid and reliable measure with three scales: Connection with Homeland, Interpersonal Norms, and Conservatism. Join Alicia to learn more about the ESFA, understand how it correlates with mood and other health variables, and consider applications of the ESFA in your professional fields. 

Alicia del Prado, PhD is a licensed psychologist, consultant, author, and tenured faculty member at the Wright Institute in Berkeley. Dr. del Prado earned her PhD in counseling psychology from Washington State University, her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Santa Clara University, and completed her predoctoral and postdoctoral training at UC Berkeley. Dr. del Prado specializes in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work. She created the first enculturation scale for Filipino Americans and has co-authored numerous publications on cross-cultural studies of personality, cultural competency in psychology, and multiracial identity.

Her most recent publications include the storybook, “Proud of my Mommy” and “It’s Time to Talk (and Listen): How to Have Constructive Conversations About Race, Class, Sexuality, Ability & Gender in a Polarized World”. Dr. del Prado’s clinical expertise has been featured in a variety of news outlets, including NPR, the San Jose Mercury, Danville Living, and Better Homes and Gardens.

Dr. del Prado serves on the Editorial Board of the Asian American Journal of Psychology, is past chair of NCSPP’s Women’s Issues Committee, co-founder and past-chair of the Asian American Psychology Association’s (AAPA) Division on Asian Americans with Multiple Heritages, past co-chair of the AAPA Division on Filipino Americans, and past faculty chair of the Wright Institute’s clinical and counseling psychology programs.

FWN convenes a weekly Virtual Water Cooler. Showing up for each other. A gathering to share, ask and give. 

SHARE: Do you have a story, an article, a job promotion, an award you received, news about your company, an idea you want to share?

ASK: Do you need advice, a resource, a contact, someone to review your resume or a speech you're writing, guidance on a marketing pitch or grant proposal? I know it's not in our culture to ask for help as many of us feel ashamed. Know that you are in a safe, private and confidential environment.

GIVE: Do you have something to give? A free consultation, a book, an item you no longer need, a ticket to attend a Zoom event or conference, a discount coupon, a free meal? Receiving is at the heart of our connection with one another. It is about paying forward.

This weekly gathering is to demonstrate the abiding power of FWN's personal connections and bringing people together in solidarity and comfort.
