Alumna and associate dean for academic affairs at the School of Social Work, Rutgers University–New Brunswick, Antoinette Y. Farmer's new book Research with Diverse Groups: Research Designs and Multvariate Latent Modeling for Equivalence (co-written with G. L. Farmer), has been published by Oxford Press. Social work researchers often conduct research with groups that are diverse in terms of gender, sexual orientation, race or ethnic background, or age, and the book introduces the methodological precautions that must be taken into consideration when conducting research with diverse groups.
