Ann Marie Roepke

Doctoral Student in Psychology, University of Pennsylvania

Ann Marie Roepke, M.A. is pursuing a Ph.D. in psychology at the University of Pennsylvania under the mentorship of Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman. She studies both clinical psychology and positive psychology. Her research interests lie at the intersection of these topics: how do some people manage to survive, and even thrive, despite challenging circumstances? How can people mobilize their own strengths to help them overcome problems? How might people change for the better after the lowest lows and highest highs of their lives? Ms. Roepke’s work is also informed by her previous training in Sociology (B.A. from the University of Arizona, summa cum laude) and her professional work with incarcerated and homeless individuals recovering from substance abuse, trauma, and mental illness.

The Foreign Policy Research Institute, founded in 1955, is a non-partisan, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization devoted to bringing the insights of scholarship to bear on the development of policies that advance U.S. national interests. In the tradition of our founder, Ambassador Robert Strausz-Hupé, Philadelphia-based FPRI embraces history and geography to illuminate foreign policy challenges facing the United States. more about FPRI »
