JULIE CEDERBAUM joined the USC School of Social Work faculty in 2009 after completing her doctoral studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where she worked within a multidisciplinary team at the Center for Health Disparities Research. Her work has focused on primary and secondary HIV prevention both within and outside the United States. Her dissertation work, funded by an individual National Research Service Award from the National Institute of Mental Health, examined mother-daughter communication about abstinence and safe sex. Specifically, she targeted understanding the differences in mother communication and daughter HIV-risk behaviors between HIV-positive and HIV-negative mother-daughter dyads.

Cederbaum's research interests include primary and secondary HIV prevention; social work and public health practice with families; and interventions with families and youth. Prior to her doctoral studies, she worked as a direct practice clinician with families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Bilingual-bicultural in Spanish, other clinical practice arenas have included welfare-to-work, health clinics and housing programs. All of Cederbaum's work has been within a family systems paradigm and utilized short-term therapeutic models.

She is a member of the Society for Social Work and Research, the Social Welfare Action Alliance and the American Public Health Association. Cederbaum serves as a reviewer for the American Journal of Public Health, the Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Nursing, and the Journal of Nursing in AIDS Care. Her teaching interests include direct social work practice with children and families, social work practice in health care settings and social work research.
