Author Biography

Christina E. Newhill, Ph.D., LCSW is currently a Professor of Social Work at the University of Pittsburgh, with a secondary appointment in the Clinical and Translational Science Institute. She holds a B.A. in sociology from the State University of New York at Binghamton, a Master in Social Work from Syracuse University and a doctorate in social welfare from the University of California at Berkeley. Her doctoral dissertation focused on developing a scale to assess danger to others in psychiatric emergency room settings.


Newhill chairs the Direct Practice Concentration in the MSW program, and teaches in the MSW and Ph.D. programs.  In 2008, she received the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Award, the University of Pittsburgh’s highest teaching honor. Professor Newhill’s primary research and scholarship interests include examining violence risk markers and psychopathology, the risk assessment of violent clients and social worker safety, evidence-based treatments for individuals with serious mental illness, emotion regulation problems and borderline personality disorder, psychiatric emergency services, racial disparities in mental health services, and social science theory. She is the principal investigator on several research studies focusing on violent behavior and risk assessment and is currently examining the relationship of borderline personality disorder, emotion-regulation problems, and violent behavior. She is also co-investigator on an NIMH-funded five-year project addressing brain imaging, cognitive enhancement and early treatment of schizophrenia.

Dr. Newhill has more than 10 years of community mental health practice experience, primarily in psychiatric emergency and inpatient settings. She has conducted training workshops on client violence and social worker safety at the local, state, and national levels for many years and authored “Client Violence in Social Work Practice: Prevention, Intervention and Research”, published in 2003 by Guilford Press and recently translated into Chinese and Korean. Professor Newhill is a licensed clinical social worker in California and Pennsylvania.
