    DORIAN TRAUBE is an associate professor at the USC School of Social Work. Her research agenda focuses on the behavioral health of high-risk adolescents. Traube's research is theory-driven and results in strategies for promoting behavioral and social functioning for high-risk populations of youth between the ages of 13 and 24.

    She has made scholarly contributions in three topic areas that assist in translating models of behavioral risk across high-risk adolescent populations. These areas are behavioral health of adolescents affected by AIDS, behavioral health of young men who have sex with men, and behavioral health of child welfare-involved adolescents. In establishing that models of behavioral risk can be translated across various high-risk adolescent populations, Traube hopes to create adolescent behavioral health prevention interventions that can be delivered to multiple at-risk populations. She is currently the principal investigator of a National Institute on Drug Abuse-funded R01 to determine the prevalence and impact of substance use, predictors of substance abuse over the course of adolescent development, and the role that current child welfare services play in ameliorating substance use and abuse. She is also funded by the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute to validate two mental health screening tools currently used by the Los Angeles County departments of Mental Health and Children and Family Services to screen children in foster care for mental health needs.

    Traube teaches the classes “Foundation of Social Work Practice with Individuals” and “Foundation of Social Work Practice with Families, Groups, and Complex Cases.” She is also co-chair of the Mental Health concentration at the USC School of Social Work. In 2006, she was awarded the University of Southern California’s Mellon Mentoring Award in recognition of her efforts to build a supportive environment for graduate student mentoring.

    Traube received her doctorate and master's degree in social work from Columbia University, where she was awarded the National Institute of Mental Health pre-doctoral fellowship in mental health services research. Before pursuing her doctorate degree, she was a clinical social worker in a pediatric HIV clinic at New York Presbyterian Hospital and a research analyst at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine, Division of Health Services Research.
