For the past 30 years, I have been teaching psychology at the Universidad Autónoma del Estado de Morelos (Morelos Autonomous State University, UAEM), where I am director of the Social Development Unit, and more recently, teaching as well at the Centro de Investigación y Docencia en Humanidades del Estado de Morelos (Morelos State Research Center for Humanities). Among the numerous projects carried out over the years, I have directed the joint project “Connecting Campus and Communities” between Calgary University, in Canada, and the UAEM. This project aimed to integrate Mexican traditional indigenous knowledge with the State University’s scientific methodologies. The project included topics related to social integration and development, such as: gender equity, health, migration, etc. Additionally, I am in charge of the State University’s Regional Centers for Community Outreach, which are located in different towns and cities within the State of Morelos.
I hold a bachelor degree in Psychology, with a specialty in Psychoanalysis, a master’s degree in Philosophy, and a Ph.D. in Political Science.
I’ve authored several books and articles on topics related to Community Psychology, Political Psychology, and Community Development and received several national and international distinctions.
