Research Interests

  • Dr. Garcia’s current research focuses on developing theory on the impact of spiritual development on responses to adversity within a broad understanding of educational environments. She is currently working on sharing the results of the initial study, as well as moving forward with further testing of the substantive theory. She also is working on turning her dissertation entitled, “Toward Christian-Identity Response Theory: Exploring Identity, Spirituality, and Response to Adversity Among African American Males Placed At Risk” into a theater of the oppressed. Her research methodology focuses on qualitative methods, with particular interest in grounded theory.
