Beth Glover Reed

Associate Professor of Social Work and Women's Studies

Beth Glover  Reed

Beth Glover Reed has a joint appointment with Women’s Studies and her general scholarly interests focus on how to define and work for social justice, barriers to this work, and ways to reduce these. Her current research is designed to a) identify approaches for working both on alcohol and other drug problems (AOD) and intimate partner violence (IPV) together; b) explore why joint work occurs infrequently despite need, and c) determine what can enhance effective attention to both issues together. Past research has included a study of how states responded to several congressional mandates to increase services for women with AOD problems, plus various types of program evaluation. Recent work has been funded by the Robert Wood Johnson and Fahs-Beck Foundations and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, the Interdisciplinary Committee on Organization Studies and several community-based programs. Other areas of research/scholarly interest focus on educational strategies and other interventions to increase social justice and social justice practice, and the application of multiple types of theorizing, including feminisms, to social justice, social problems and social change.

Research Interests/Focus

Gender/ethnicity in social systems, feminist/multicultural practice, alcohol/drugs.
