Chelsey Cain

Visiting Assistant Professor

Chelsey Cain researches the collateral consequences of incarceration, from pretrial detention to the long shadow of carrying a criminal record. Additionally, she examines substance use treatment, centered around harm reduction strategies with a public health approach. She is currently completing her Ph.D. in the Criminal Justice Department at Temple University, where she also earned her M.A., and B.A. in Psychology from TU. Her dissertation will examine how the nature of isolation due to COVID-19 restrictions impacted the social support networks within the recovery communities, especially those in 12-step fellowships. Beyond enjoying spending time with her family and three dogs, in her spare time, Chelsey powerlifts competitively.
