Margaret Lloyd Sieger, PhD

Associate Professor

Margaret H. Lloyd Sieger, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor. Her professional and practice background includes clinical work with children and adolescents affected by parental addiction at the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence and as a civil litigation paralegal. These experiences shaped her interest in improving outcomes for families with maternal substance use disorders in the child welfare system, with particular attention to the intersecting impacts of gender, poverty, and race. Margaret’s research focuses on mothers and infants with prenatal substance-exposure, child protection policies and systems, and family treatment courts. She is currently leading Connecticut’s evaluation of its CAPTA implementation as well as two federally-funded family treatment court studies in Oklahoma.  She is also engaged in collaborative research with faculty at the UConn SSW and the Connecticut Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.  Dr. Lloyd Sieger teaches courses in substance use disorder, research, program evaluation, and social policy.

Lloyd Sieger was recently a guest on UConn’s 360 Podcast Episode 109: Getting It Right on Substance Use Disorder, in which she talks about Connecticut’s national-model data gathering system on substance abuse disorder, how to help make social workers’ lives easier, and what it’s like to be part of drafting a new law.
