Marjorie N. Edguer is an Assistant Professor at the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences at Case Western Reserve University. She has worked in the field of social work, primarily with children, adolescents and their families, for more than twenty-five years. Marjorie has worked as a clinical social worker in outpatient mental health centers, a school social worker, a school-based preventionist (of child risk behavior), and an advocate and crisis hotline worker in a domestic violence program. She developed programming for individual and group treatment for adolescent sexual abuse and trauma survivors; children of alcoholics/drug addicts; children and youth experiencing grief; and universal, targeted and selective prevention programming for at-risk youth in school settings around a range of problem areas including suicide, substance use, and school drop-out. Marjorie has supervised social workers, counselors, and social work interns.

Her administrative roles have related to program evaluation, quality assurance, and staff education and training. Marjorie has authored six entries in the Encyclopedia of Immigrant Health: Child Immigrants; Child Development and Immigration; Family Immigration; Intergenerational Differences and Immigration; Trauma Exposure and Immigration; and Unaccompanied Minors. Her main areas of academic study are related to youth, youth services, youth development, and resilience. Her dissertation research looked at a high-risk sample of prenatally substance-exposed youth, and the relationship of risk, protective factors and gender to risky health behaviors in adolescence. Marjorie teaches courses on social work practice, practice evaluation, and child development.
