About Arthur J. Lurigio

My research interests are broad and interdisciplinary. I was trained in both clinical and social psychology and expressions of those specialty areas appear in my publications, presentations, and grantsmanship. Except for a few notable exceptions, I have pursued my scholarship outside the laboratory and at the interface of psychology and criminal justice. I have applied my background in psychology to examine a wide variety of topics, including the emotional recovery of crime victims, crime-reporting behaviors, police officers' job satisfaction, risk assessment tools, probation officer's decision-making strategies, community crime prevention, and HIV prevention in jails. I have also performed numerous process and outcome evaluations of programs in the fields of criminal justice, mental health, and substance abuse. My current research agenda focuses on the nature and extent of mental illnesses and co-occurring disorders among correctional populations. In addition, I am now using research as a tool to improve the treatment of the mentally ill in the criminal justice system and to alleviate the problem of disproportionate minority confinement for drug crimes.
