Peggy Morton MSW, DSW
Peggy Morton's professional interests include women's reproductive health issues, specifically the social and psychological effects of pregnancy loss and infertility; school-based social work practice and the integration of professional identity of the social worker/psychoanalyst. She has delivered a number of professional papers on psychological and social aspects of infertility and pregnancy loss and on the "double-identity" of the social work-psychoanalyst.
Her practice experience includes clinical work with children and adolescents, the elderly, and terminally-ill patients and their families in both private and public (agency-based) settings. She has consulted to community-based agencies on establishing school-based social service programs and has supervised numerous workers and social work interns in middle and high schools in the Metropolitan area.
Professor Morton teaches Bachelor of Social Work and M.S.W. courses in Human Behavior and Practice. She has had extensive experience both as a field instructor and faculty advisor in both the undergraduate and graduate social work programs.
