Biography

Reforming the Criminal Justice System to Improve the Human Condition and Strengthen Urban Communities.

Mass incarceration in the Unites States exacts enormous human and economic tolls, particularly in disadvantaged urban communities.  My long-term goal is to contribute to the grand challenge of smart decarceration through my research, teaching, and service. 

I have a varied scientific background having conducted neurological clinical trial research and ethnographic research concerning health, mental health, and well-being. I completed my doctoral training at the University of Michigan’s joint social science and social work program specializing in medical anthropology and clinical social work. My commitment to multidisciplinarity, social critique and social justice, and the interconnectedness of individual well-being and experience with policies, practices and institutions has steered my research trajectory. My dissertation research was a critical qualitative study of the Toronto mental health court. From this work, 3 streams of research emerged: reducing incarceration through innovation; promoting public safety in a more socially just way, and; ameliorating disparities in the criminal justice system.

News Articles

    • Oct 2016 Fort Worth Inc. Magazine: UTA Researchers Building App to Predict Emotions

      Digitizing Emotion: Imagine if domestic violence offenders received a warning and coping tools before they had angry outbursts. Imagine the impact this would have on the 3 to 6 million domestic violence victims in the United States.

      Interview with Dr. Jodi Tommerdahl about research using neuroscience to assist in anger management.

    • Apr 2016 NBC - Channel 5 news: UTA Researchers Developing Anger Technology to Help Combat Domestic Violence

      A team of researchers at UT-Arlington is working to develop new technology that can tell a person he or she is getting angry before they realize it. If theyre successful, they say this could be a game changer for domestic violence prevention – a topic in which Dr. Anne Nordberg has a keen interest.

    • Feb 2016 The UTA Shorthorn news article: Student research could help human behavior understanding

      The School of Social Work has partnered with College of Education’s Department of Curriculum and Instruction, College of Engineering and Department of Psychology for a pilot study using electroencephalogram, also known as neurofeedback, to identify brain signals related to emotions. The pilot research project will explore the electrocortical, electrical activity in the cerebral cortex, and cardiovascular activities during anger and happiness stimuli in a sample of 40 male student volunteers..... The study is preliminary, said Anne Nordberg, assistant professor at School of Social Work and research associate for the Center of African American Studies.“We hope that this will lay the groundwork for followup studies in pursuit of a way to detect and alert people that they are about to become very angry,” Nordberg said. “An early warning system that could be transmitted to a portable or wearable device like a smart phone or like a Fitbit-like device.”

    • Aug 2015 UT Arlington Interdisciplinary Research Program Projects Reach Across Disciplines

       Five collaborative research projects involving faculty from seven colleges and schools ranging from innovations in pain management to personal security have won inaugural Interdisciplinary Research Program awards through a University of Texas at Arlington initiative aimed at advancing true interdisciplinary research and enhance the Universitys competitive position nationally.

Research and Expertise

  • People in contact with the criminal justice system

    I am interested in the experiences of people in contact with the law in various ways. For instance, minority residents in police encounters, mentally ill people in specialty mental health courts, people with substance use problems in drug treatment courts, people transitioning from jail to the community, and programs that aim to prevent or minimize contact with the criminal justice system.

  • Qualitative and Mixed Methods Research

    Interpretative Phenomenological Analysis (IPA), Ethnography, Qualitative and Quantitative Content Analysis

  • Race Relations

    Minority populations and especially Black Americans are over-represented in every facet of the criminal justice system. I write against the systems of structural racism, privilege, and power that enables and reproduces this disparity.

  • Social Justice

    I have conducted social justice-related research in Rwanda, Canada, and the United States and I regularly teach classes focused on oppression and social justice issues.

      • SOCW 5317-007 HUMAN BEHAVIOR AND DIVERSE POPULATIONS

        Introduction to theoretical, practical, and  policy issues related to race, ethnicity, and  women. Historical, political, and  socioeconomic forces are  examined that maintain racist and  sexist values, attitudes, and  behaviors in society and  all levels  of organizational behavior. This course is part of the  Human Behavior and  the  Social  Environment curriculum sequence in the School  of Social  Work at the  University of Texas  at Arlington. Students are  introduced to the theoretical issues related to race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and  disability status. Course includes a study of historical, political, and  socioeconomic forces that maintain racist, sexist, heterosexist, and  ablest values, attitudes and  behaviors in our society and  profession. Concepts related to race and  ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and  disability status include but  are  not limited to sociopolitical processes (racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, oppression, prejudice, discrimination, class, etc.), interpersonal processes (identity, self concept/esteem, authenticity, mental health, and  basic behaviors), and  socio-cultural processes (cultural fusion, culture conflict, acculturation, and  assimilation). The implications of these sociopolitical, intrapersonal, and  socio- cultural processes for social  work  practice are  examined in terms of social  work  values, knowledge and  skills at the  micro, mezzo,  and  macro levels  of organizational behavior.
