James I. Martin MSW, PhD
Professor James Martin received a PhD in social work from the University of Illinois at Chicago and an MSW from the University of Michigan. His research is associated with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) identities, and health and mental health disparities among LGBT populations. He has particular interests in the impact of sociohistorical changes on identity and development, the impact of psychosocial and structural factors on HIV prevention among gay and bisexual men, and on special issues in research methods with LGBT populations.
In the MSW program he has taught Practice, Research, and Contemporary LGBT Issues, and in the PhD Program he has taught Statistics and the Dissertation Proseminar. Professor Martin most recent studies have examined the association of victimization and coping with risky sexual behavior among gay and bisexual men, and the treatment of LGBT issues in American social work education. Prior to joining the faculty at NYU, Professor Martin was assistant professor at the University of Texas at Arlington. Previous to entering academic life, he maintained a private clinical practice in Chicago and led Hartgrove Hospital's Department of Social Work. Professor Martin is a member of the steering committee of the Group for the Advancement of Doctoral Education in Social Work, and he is chair of the Caucus of LGBT Faculty and Students in Social Work.
