Joe Ryan's research and teaching build upon his direct practice experiences with child welfare and juvenile justice populations. His work focuses on the experiences and outcomes of families entangled with the public child welfare system and at least one other social service context. He is particularly interested in public policy and clinical interventions to address the needs of children and families with co-occurring problems.
