C. Andrew Conway is a postdoctoral scholar working with Mark Feinberg on the Family Foundations project. He holds a Ph.D. in Family Science from the University of Maryland School of Public Health and a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Andrew’s research has centered on the mental health and well-being of youth and families, with a specific interest in the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) on Latino immigrant youth. Andrew’s work seeks to move the field beyond thinking of childhood adversity as household dysfunction and towards recognizing the significant impacts of social-level factors, including the effects of racism, oppression, and colonization. He has a graduate certificate in Measurement, Statistics, and Evaluation and was named a Research Scholar at the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families in 2020.
As a licensed clinical social worker, Andrew has experience in various therapeutic techniques, including play therapy, trauma-informed care, attachment theory, and cognitive-behavioral approaches. He completed a post-graduate fellowship at the Yale Child Study Center and later served as clinical faculty. Andrew bridges his clinical work and research through partnerships with community-based organizations.
