Jasmine Infante-Cruz, LMSW, Ph.D. Candidate


Jasmine Infante-Cruz received her Bachelor of Arts from Long Island University and completed her Master of Social Work degree from Adelphi University in 2004.

She has 13 years of experience working with adults, children, adolescents and families in forensic, mental health and school social work. After earning her M.S.W., Infante-Cruz began her career as a day treatment psychiatric social worker working with children and adolescents with severe mental illness. Her work with adults included monitoring progress and participation in treatment through court-ordered services.

In her current role as a certified bilingual school social work, she provides mandated counseling for high school students with disabilities. Throughout her career as a bilingual social worker, she has worked with many Latino immigrant adolescents and their families, which has inspired her to pursue her interest in acculturation research.

In her research, Infante-Cruz hopes to gain a better understanding of second-generation Latina adolescent experiences with acculturative stress, the risk and protective factors and the resulting psychological distress such as depression and suicidality of these acculturating youth.
