Bio

Dr. Quinn joined the faculty at the College of Social Work in 2016. Drawing from prior clinical and administrative experience in social and health services with children and families involved in the juvenile/criminal and child welfare systems, Dr. Quinn investigates mechanisms that underlie individual and structural barriers associated with recidivism and comorbid mental health disparities of vulnerable youth. Her mixed methods research is guided by race-based, criminological, and social determinants of health theories to inform interventions for youth of color to reduce their recidivism and mental health burden. Dr. Quinn is currently partnering with the Ohio Department of Youth Services to investigate and racial differences in aggression, criminal offense, and comorbid mental health problems (trauma, substance use and suicidal thoughts and behaviors) while in corrections, as well as structural barriers associated with recidivism and mental health problems when they re-enter society. This work is informed by specialized training in mixed methods and the prevention and intervention of suicide and violence research. July 2017 ICRC-S Blog: July 2017 ICRC-S Blog
