Ethnographic Methods for Social Justice: A Case Study on Drug User Research

Sun, August 11, 12:30 to 2:10pm, Sheraton New York, Floor: Second Floor, Empire Ballroom West


My studies use ethnographic methods to better understand drug user trajectories that are examined for the duration of their life course. My findings show the variability and continuity in drug use over time. The findings also contribute to the efficacy of drug treatment and sheds light on the criminal justice system’s impact on drug users. In recent years I am using an innovative mixed methodology for examining and understanding behavior over time.
