Personal Statement

I selected Social Work education as a career because I wanted to contribute academically to my chosen profession. In the classroom, I seek to engage students experientially as well as intellectually. In addition to presenting theory and research, I also rely on student case material and my knowledge of today’s social agencies, which address an ever-changing array of ethical challenges, funding dilemmas, and client concerns.
In my early scholarship, I focused on divorce and single-parent families. A highlight was my book Helping Families through Divorce (NY: Springer, 1995). Later, due to my experience with Adelphi students employed in child welfare, I moved into the study of foster care. Sabbatical research (conducted during 2003) about foster children’s views concerning their in-care experiences led to numerous conference presentations and articles in peer-reviewed journals. Most recently (2010), I was appointed an Associate Editor at Families in Society, a top-tier social work journal. In this capacity, I work to promote relevance and rigor in the manuscripts chosen for publication.

Teaching Specializations/Interests

I have taught Human Behavior and Foundation Social Work Practice to BSW and MSW students, and Advanced Social Work Practice with Individuals to MSW students. I teach an original doctoral course on the theoretical underpinnings of social work intervention with individuals.
