Della V. Mosley
is a counseling psychologist, school counselor, scholar-activist in the movement for Black Lives and an assistant professor in counseling psychology department at the University of Florida.
Della's work is centered on the psychopolitical wellness of people and communities that are marginalized. Under this umbrella, Della's work seeks to answer the following interrelated questions: (1) what are the processes of oppression that Black, queer, and gender-expansive people experience; (2) how do people experiencing racial, sexual, and/or gender-based oppression promote their holistic wellness through individual and community-based practices; and (3) what is role of counseling psychology as it relates to promoting healing and liberation for these groups systemically? These questions have led to a research program centered on antiracist praxis and diversifying sexology. True to counseling psychology values, Della focuses on social justice, prevention, holistic wellness, and strengths in her research. Della pursues contextually rich, qualitative, and intersectional approaches to exploring the experiences and promoting the wellness of Black, queer, trans and/or gender expansive people.
Della will be co-developing a year long mental health practitioner training program to provide mental health services using an anti-oppression and social justice lens.
