Husain Lateef's research focuses on the role African-centered approaches may have in improving outcomes of youth prevention programs for African American youth. While a doctoral student, he began authoring theory-driven publications to advance knowledge in social work about culturally responsive practice with African American youth. He is currently examining the relationship between African-centered constructs and indicators of positive youth development among African American youth.
Lateef served as the social work supervisor for the Arizona Justice Project's Re-Entry Team, one of Arizona's first re-entry programs assisting juveniles who had been serving life-without-parole sentences in prison before the Supreme Court found those sentences to be unconstitutional. After years of working to support juvenile lifers as they returned to society, Lateef is now focused on developing a research agenda aimed at improving interprofessional practice between social work and law.
