Bio
Dr. Megan Petra is an Assistant Professor in the social work program. She teaches in both the Bachelor of Social Work & Master of Social Work programs, and conducts research about addictions and family violence. Dr. Petra is especially interested in how families of people with addictive disorders cope with the situation, given complicating factors such as intimate partner violence or membership in diversity groups such as the LGBT community. She uses both quantitative and qualitative methods in her research. Dr. Petra’s social work practice experience includes work with women at a domestic violence shelter and on college campuses, facilitating support groups for members of the LGBT community, case work with older adults, community organizing around women’s issues, and working with community groups to evaluate prevention programs targeting adolescent substance use.
