Dr. Catherine Greeno is an associate professor of social work at the University of Pittsburgh. Her work has focused on topics such as case-management reforms and barriers to mental health care.
Her research project with Family Services of Western Pennsylvania led to development and testing of an outpatient model of treatment.
Greeno’s presentation is part of Cal U’s Research and Real Life series, sponsored by the Center for Undergraduate Research. The series emphasizes the importance of research methods across majors and disciplines.
“Dr. Greeno’s work is an example of how research impacts the day-to-day lives of members of the community by affecting treatment choices and protocols,” said Dr. Azadeh Block, an associate professor of social work at Cal U and director of the undergraduate research center.
“It also demonstrates options for our students who are interested in the fields of mental health counseling and social work.”
The Research and Real Life series continues at 11 a.m. Nov. 4, when security expert Keith Mularski presents “Understanding Cyber Adversaries to Prevent and Detect Cyber Attacks.”
