Glenda Kaufman Kantor, Ph.D., Research Associate Professor
Glenda Kaufman Kantor is a Research Associate Professor at the Family Research Laboratory (FRL), Crimes Against Children Research Center, and the Department of Sociology at the University of New Hampshire, and co-director of the FRL’s NIMH funded Post-Doctoral Research Training Fellowship Program in Family Violence. She has many years of experience as a sociologist, criminologist and program evaluator. Her major research interests are related to the linkages between substance abuse and family violence, cultural influences on alcohol and wife abuse, child maltreatment, particularly, child neglect, and the etiology and prevention of intra-family violence. Her methodological interests involve the testing of causal models, and more recently, measurement development. Past research projects include a longitudinal analysis of family members' alcohol use, marital conflict and violence, and a national bilingual study of alcohol and family violence. She is currently directing multiple studies on family violence related issues such as a NH evaluation of the Greenbook Project (a project on system response to the co-occurrence of wife abuse and child maltreatment); a research partnership to improve NH state data on abused and neglected children (NH PARCS); a study on the health of NH's foster care children; and an evaluation of NH’s emerging statewide advocacy centers. She is also the Principal Investigator of an NICHD/OJJDP funded study on the causes and assessment of child neglect.
