During this talk, Prof. Marilyn Sinkewicz, Assistant Professor of Social Work, will discuss findings from her current paper, which explores two different theories, with very different policy implications, that have emerged to explain the reciprocal and reinforcing relation between psychopathology and socioeconomic status: social causation (poverty leads to mental illness) and social selection (mental illness leads to poverty). The study she will discuss uses nationally representative longitudinal data to examine causation and selection processes and their relative predictive value over the adult life course.
Lunch will be provided. Please note any dietary needs in the RSVP comments
