About Judah J. Viola, Ph.D.
Hello, my name is Judah Viola. I am a Community Psychologist and Associate professor of Psychology in the College of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences at National Louis University in Chicago, Illinois, where I maintain active research and teaching duties. I also manage an independent consulting practice that specializes in program evaluation, needs assessment, community building, and collaborative community research. Recent clients have included local and national nonprofits, public school systems, museum and art institutions, social service agencies, and community development organizations.
My research and advocacy interests involve promoting healthy communities and increasing civic engagement and prosocial behavior of individuals and groups within communities. More specifically, this has led me to a varied range of research and evaluation topics including: leadership development for self-advocates and parents of children with disabilities, barriers to equity in public safety policy, neighborhood revitalization, urban education for students with disabilities, substance abuse aftercare, affordable housing, access to healthcare, access to healthy food, fatherhood, and violence prevention and intervention programs for youth.
Feel free to contact me with questions about consulting with community-based organizations, graduate training in community psychology, Career options for community psychologists, or university partnerships.
