Robert G. Madden, LCSW, J.D.
Professor, Dept. of Social Work & Equitable Community Practice
Prof. Madden’s teaching is informed by his own considerable breadth of experience and vigorous involvement on the frontlines, working with families and the legal system. “Teaching is always informed by your practice,” Madden says. “I am able to provide contemporary examples and real-life circumstances, share my struggles as a professional, and explain how I have grown as a practitioner.” His first-hand illustrations – with names omitted – enriches the classroom experience for students, strengthening their preparation.
