CAROLANN PETERSON joined the the USC School of Social Work adjunct faculty in 2004, where she teaches a domestic violence course.
As founder and CEO of Peterson Professional Alliance, Dr. Peterson works with corporations, helping them recognize and understand the impact of domestic violence in the workplace, in addition to assisting organizations with welfare reform and its effect on victims of domestic violence. She also conducts domestic violence training for organizations, including the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health and the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, which is a branch of Homeland Security that prepares rural law enforcement officers and domestic violence advocates to be trainers in their own communities.
Dr. Peterson is a consultant for the Family Violence Prevention Fund, the national organization on domestic violence, and provides assistance to counties on implementing welfare programs for victims of domestic violence. She was also the fund's representative to the Violence Against Women Act and Welfare Re-authorization Committee at the national level and has provided assistance to other state coalitions on welfare reform, legislation and training issues. Currently, she is working on a joint project with the California Institute for Mental Health and Children and Family Futures regarding outcome measures for Los Angeles County.
