Assistant Professor of Psychological Science

Payton Small is a social psychologist whose research examines how people cope with experiences of prejudice, discrimination, devalued and/or questioned social identities. He is particularly interested in the role of strength of racial and ethnic identification on people’s responses to such experiences, how identification processes are affected by these experiences and the implications of these experiences on psychological and physical well-being.
