Dr. Maureen Blankemeyer
I received a B.S. in Psychology from Bowling Green State University, an M.S. in Family Relations and Child Development, and a Ph.D. in Human Environmental Sciences, both graduate degrees from Oklahoma State University. In 1996 I joined the faculty of Kent State University. I am a Certified Family Life Educator and currently teach the following courses: Interpersonal Relationships and Families, Family Intervention Across the Lifespan, Changing Roles of Men and Women, Family Life Education, and Work and Family. I've conducted research in Northern Ireland on children and parents' perceptions of peace and political violence. Other research interests include bereavement and family life education. I am a member of the Ohio Council on Family Relations and the National Council on Family Relations (NCFR), including the International, Education and Enrichment, and Family Science sections of NCFR.
