Personal Statement

Personal Statement

My primary areas of focus are social work with groups, agency-based practice, and organizational and community practice. I have been involved with a range of social work fields, settings and populations, both locally and internationally, including youth programs, disaster response, field education and training, social work education and regulation, housing, older adults, and child welfare. I am committed to collaborative, participatory research and evaluation, seeking to engage practitioners, students and consumers in examining outcomes and planning new interventions. My research generally incorporates both qualitative and quantitative methods, and I am considered an expert in focus group research. My publications include 4 books and over 30 journal articles, book chapters and reviews. I am an editorial board member of Groupwork and the Journal of Teaching in Social Work, reviewer for the Journal of Social Work with Groups, the Clinical Supervisor, and the Journal of Social Work Education, past chair of the New York State Social Work Board, co-chair of the Council on Social Work Education’s Group Work Track, Commissioner on the CSWE Global Commission, and co-chair of the International Association for Social Work with Group’s Commission on Education in Social Work with Groups.
