Clinical and Organizational Perspectives
Judith Geneva Balcerzak, PhD, MSW, LCSW, has worked as a clinical social worker for over 35 years. Licensed in California since 1981, she has spent decades working in health care in the public and private sectors. Balcerzak teaches in the Marriage and Family Therapy Master’s Degree Program at California Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, California. She also teaches in the Psychology and Sociology Departments at Ventura College, where she developed the Human Services Degree and Certificate Programs. After completing her MSW at Wayne State University (Detroit) in 1977, Balcerzak has been a resident of California since the early 1980s. In her private clinical and consulting practice, Judith has encountered many clients, students, and organizations with workplace bullying problems. Balcerzak’s recent doctorates in social work and organizational psychology are examples of her passion for lifelong learning. An avid sailor and scuba diver, Balcerzak and her husband, Daniel Jordan, PhD, ABPP, divide their time between Ventura County, California, and the island country of Dominica in the eastern Caribbean. Their commitment to human rights and social justice is central to their values and practice.
