Biography

Biography

Dr. Nordberg is an associate professor of social work at The University of Texas at Arlington (UT Arlington). She completed her doctoral training at the University of Michigan’s joint social science and social work program specializing in medical anthropology and clinical psychiatric social work. Her dissertation research was an ethnographic and phenomenological study of the Toronto mental health court. Since joining the UT Arlington faculty in 2013, Dr. Nordberg’s research has focused on contributing to two of the four guiding concepts of the smart decarceration initiative: Making criminal justice (CJ) system innovations and changing the narratives on CJ-involved populations. Her research lies primarily with research focused on problem-solving courts (drug court, mental health court, veterans court), innovations in support of successful parole and probation, and challenging narratives on people at risk of CJ involvement. She is a qualitative methodologist and teaches the qualitative methodology class in UT Arlington’s doctoral program.
