Kathy Lemon's scholarly interests are focused on how child welfare practices and policies
influence child and family well-being, particularly among culturally diverse populations.
She is the author of several publications focused on reunification and permanency
outcomes among children and families involved in the child welfare system and cross-system
collaboration. In partnership with SJSU colleagues and community partners, Kathy is
the recipient of a California Social Work Education Center grant, for the “Child Welfare
Partnership for Research and Training” (CW-PART), an innovative university-agency
partnership for research and training.
