BiographyDr. Erik Schott, EdD, MSW, LCSW, is a social work professor of clinical practice, licensed clinical social worker, educational psychologist, and instructional designer in Los Angeles. The nexus of his clinical practice, teaching, and scholarship profile is a commitment to lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and intersex (LGBTQI) social work, child development, ADHD, couple therapy, HIV/AIDS, and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) pedagogy. He is a certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) psychotherapist and holds specialized training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). He has worked as a front-line clinician and was a program director at the Serra Project, a housing non-profit that organized in response to the outbreak of the HIV/AIDS pandemic – a crisis that rages on and must be ended. Schott teaches generalist to advanced clinical practice courses and has initiated innovative curriculum
design on LGBTQI clinical, policy, and community organizing practice. At the vanguard of
online education, Erik created immersive coursework to address social stigma for the
LGBTQI community in both North and South America. He co-edited the book Transformative
Social Work Practice (Sage, 2016). Follow him on Twitter @EriksEasel. Check out his latest work with Routledge/Taylor & Francis (2021) LGBTQI Workbook for CBT.
