Helen Weingarten

Helen Weingarten MSW, PhD is an Associate Professor Emerita at the University of Michigan School of Social Work. She was the co-founder and co-director of an interdisciplinary, program in conflict management alternatives sponsored by the Hewlett Foundation whose focus was on understanding the relationship among conflict behavior, social change, and social justice. In her writing, Dr. Weingarten explored the strategies of conflict resolution required of a third party when the motivations of those in conflict differ. Post- retirement, she has focused on her lifelong love of the visual arts. A docent at the University of Michigan Museum of Art for the past 10 years, she has designed and led museum tours for children, adults, and, currently, persons coping with dementia. In addition, along with other art related subjects, she has lectured and led study groups on the art of Africa. Helen and her husband Bill are world travelers. They have fallen in love with Africa, their last trips being safaris in Kenya, South Africa, and Botswana. Wildlife photography is also a passion, and they are looking forward to wonderful photographic opportunities and sharing these with others.
