JEREMY GOLDBACH joined the USC School of Social Work in 2012 after completing both his master's and doctoral degrees in social work at The University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation, “Toward the prevention of high risk behavior in sexual minority adolescents,” explored the relationship between minority stress and marijuana use by lesbian, gay and bisexual adolescents. His work at UT-Austin was funded through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), specializing in prevention science.
Dr. Goldbach’s research interest involves understanding the relationship between minority stress and behavioral health outcomes, with a special focus on the experiences of sexual/gender minority (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender; LGBT) and ethnic minority youth. Dr. Goldbach holds funding from the National Institutes on Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), has received funding through the National Institutes of Health Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) to pilot an intervention for Latino youth and families and has received funding through the Zumberge Small Grant Program to explore stress and behavioral health outcomes in a qualitative sample of racially and ethnically diverse LGBT adolescents. Lastly, Dr. Goldbach serves as project evaluator with the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) HIV/AIDS Spectrum: Mental Health Training and Education of Social Workers Project.
His practice background includes both clinical and community organizing. Before returning for his doctoral education, Goldbach oversaw a large community-organizing project in Texas that funded 32 community coalitions to reduce substance use concerns through environmental, policy-based strategy. His teaching interests include direct social work practice, human behavior, and research with vulnerable populations.
