Who We Are
Project RISE is a research team at UCSB under the direction of Dr. Tania Israel. We develop and study interventions to support LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer) individuals and communities. Some of our projects have included developing online interventions to reduce the negative impact of internalized stigma, training law enforcement on LGBTQ issues, and researching LGBTQ people's experiences in therapy. Project RISE is committed to training students to support LGBTQ people through research, policy, and practice.
