Shipra Parikh, LCSW, is an Associate Instructional Professor at the University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice.
Her research focuses on relational attachment in youth and families, especially as it pertains to intergenerational trauma, community violence, the practice of adultism, and abuse. Parikh is also interested in social work across international settings. She has a particular focus on the experiences of the South Asian diaspora and within India itself, as a prime example of social work needing to apply intersectionality to religion, caste, class, gender, sexuality, ability, and ethnic diversity. Parikh is interested in training future social workers, providing and engaging in responsible clinical consultation, and creating linkages at the macro level to create more spaces for learning.
