Christina L. Erickson, Ph.D., LISW was highlighted in the most recent edition of SWK Advocates magazines by NASW. See the story on Climate Change beginning on page 17 of the magazine. One of the courses Christina Erickson teaches is “Environmental Justice and Social Change,”which she said examines the relationship between environmental justice issues and the principles and methods of social change. It also explores the relationship between environmental damage and damage to human populations, the differential effect of environmental damage on specific populations, and the ways social change agents can mobilize action to correct these injustices, said Erickson, a professor and director of the BSW program at Augsburg University in Minneapolis.
