Research and Expertise

  • Domestic violence

    I am interested in integrating a strengths-based approach to offender populations. My research has a focus on building solutions with men charged with domestic violence

  • Solution-focused brief therapy

    I am interested in integrating solution-focused brief therapy with self-determination theory. There are a number of overlaps between the two, particulary in regard to interventions. SFBT is considered a bottoms up in that it is atheoretical model of practice while SDT is top down, based on a theoretical overview. Together, both have the potential to widen the practice field.

      • SOCW 6326-001 DIRECT PRACTICE WITH CHILDREN AND FAMILIES

        This second year required course for family and children focuses on direct social work practice with children and their families.  The rationale for the course is that in many settings, social workers often are the first, and sometimes the only, helping professionals available to provide services to troubled and troubling children.   Social workers, therefore, need a core base of assessment and intervention skills to work effectively with a variety of problems that children, parent(s) and family members commonly encounter.  Assessment of children's problems is understood in the context of human development, both of the individual child, their parent(s) and family, as well as of the larger systems in the changing environment. An integrative bio-psycho-social framework, drawing particularly on a strengths and competency perspective  is used to assess and intervene with children's problems and difficulties

      • SOCW 6343-001 Intimate Partner Violence

        Violence against women and children continues to be a persistent social problem, tragically affecting large segments of our population.  In the past 20 years, awareness of this problem has been raised in academia, the empirical field, through front line workers in shelters for battered women, child protective agencies, mental health, and from the feminist and men’s treatment movement.   Despite this length of time, the assessment, treatment, and prevention of violence against women and children is making small yet important changes.

        The focus of this course will be on models of service delivery to address violence against woman, child physical and sexual abuse, elder abuse, lesbian/ gay battering, dating violence, and prevention.  The course will provide an overview of conceptual models of violence, consider risk factors and trauma affects of victimization, and suggest some clinical interventions.  Because women are disproportionately affected by violence, there will be an emphasis on some of the special needs of this population.  Consideration will also be given to the importance of culture/ethnicity.

        Assessing and treating the impact of violence against women and children cannot occur in isolation.  Therefore, a special consideration will be given towards a coordinated community response between professionals and agencies.  Students will have the opportunity to explore their own attitudes about the problem of violence and to learn some basic skills for detecting this problem and intervening with clients and patients.  Students will be expected to demonstrate understanding of the dynamic of violence and also be asked to critically evaluate models of assessment, delivery, theories, and interventions.

      • SOCW 6318-001 DIRECT PRACTICE WITH AGING

        Gerontological, or aging, practice in social work is an area of increasing demand.  Indeed, with the "graying of America" social workers and other professionals will find themselves working more with people over age 65.  It is the intent of this course to inform students of the social, psychological, biological, economic, legal and health related issues confronting the elderly, their families and society in general.  The course provides a generalist’s knowledge base and more specialized direct practice and intervention skills, as necessary for practice with older adults, and explores the service settings responsive to their needs.  Understanding, critical thinking, and additional advocacy skills will be stressed as the plight of at-risk special populations such as older minorities and women is examined.

        This course provides an overview of direct practice with children, adolescents, and their families. In this course we focus on a strengths-based paradigm of interviewing, focusing on child/family directed change. While this course acknowldges the role of diagnosis, there is no emphasis on medical-based assessment and treatment or use of the DSM. Instead, the focus is on building practice-based evidence for change that rests in developing alliance and therapeutic relationship skills with children, adolescents, and their families.
