Carolyn Hanesworth, PhD, LCSW
I am a social worker with 26 years in direct practice, administration and consultation related to homeless services. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor of Social Work at Mercy College in New York City, and an independent consultant and certified trainer with the Center for the Advancement of Critical Time Intervention (CACTI), at CUNY/Hunter College Silberman School of Social Work (www.criticaltime.org)
In 2016, I became the Project Director for a multi-year pilot study examining the implementation of CTI for Rapid Rehousing in seven Connecticut agencies. As part of this work, I co-developed a new practitioner toolkit and manual for CTI. In my role at CACTI, I am engaged in multiple projects involving the dissemination of this work across the country. I have trained several organizations in CTI, including those serving people experiencing homelessness, chronic mental illness, incarceration, foster care, and addiction.
