Welcome, my name is Rhonda G. Patrick and I am a social work educator, researcher and practitioner. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Texas, with an extensive background in business and program management associated with the design, delivery, and evaluation of social services.
I have over 20 years of clinical, administrative, and governmental social work practice experience. My skills include providing high level consulting services for state agencies, educational institutions, research organizations, and non-profit agencies. I provide business consultation services to community based social service organizations that includes new business start-up, strategic turn-around, program design, implementation and evaluation, revenue development, and general business administration and management.
In addition to my business and administrative enterprises, I am an educator. I own and operate a Web Based Learning Management Company with over 4,500 active students, and I am the primary researcher and designer of content. Our mission is the educational and professional development of behavioral health professionals.
I am currently a PhD candidate at the University of Houston, Graduate College of Social Work. My primary area of research is about substance use disorders. My dissertation is titled “Health, Wellness, and Quality of Life Satisfaction Among Persons Receiving Medication Assisted Treatment.” I am scheduled to defend my dissertation in the Spring of 2018 and graduate in May 2018.
