Robinson-Wood, Tracy

Tracy Robinson-Wood is a professor in the Department of Applied Psychology at Northeastern University. She is author of The Convergence of Race, Ethnicity, and Gender: Multiple Identities in Counseling. The fifth edition, to be published by SAGE, is anticipated in 2016. Her research interests focus on the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and class in psychosocial identity development. She has developed the Resistance Modality Inventory (RMI), a psychometrically valid measure of psychological resistance based upon a theory of resistance she co-developed for black girls and women to optimally push back against racism, sexism, classism, and other forms of oppression. Her research is also focused on parents’ racial socialization messages within interracial families, and the relational, psychological, and physiological impact of microaggressions on highly educated racial, gender, and sexual minorities. Prior to Northeastern University, Dr. Robinson-Wood was a professor in the Department of Counselor Education at North Carolina State University. A California native, Dr. Robinson-Wood earned her undergraduate degree in Psychology and Communication from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA. Her graduate degrees are in Human Development and Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. She and her husband are proud parents of twin daughters.
