Scholarly Activities

Professor Beaulieu is currently engaged in research with Dr. Kenneth Crane, Professor of History and Sociology at La Sierra University.  They are conducting research that explores the perceived reception of help by recent Iraqi refugees through the services offered by the Department of Public Social Services and in turn, the perception case workers have of Iraqi refugees and the impact of this perception on service provision.  The research should have implications for practice methods in the areas of cultural competency and assessment of the needs of those who have experienced war, trauma and displacement.
