Paul M. Kubek, MA
Director of Communications

Paul M. Kubek, MA, is director of communications at the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Mr. Kubek specializes in knowledge translation and research dissemination (bringing science to service) with more than 20 years of experience writing for university-based initiatives, especially those that improve social work practice and mental-health and addiction services. In his work, he focuses on translating the knowledge of researchers and practitioners from multiple disciplines into educational tools that are accessible to multiple audiences, including policymakers, administrators, clinicians, and advocates.

Mr. Kubek combines experience in feature writing, technical writing, editing, art direction, and project management when developing print and web-based communications. He complements his skills by collaborating with professionals in other disciplines, including graphic artists, printers, and programmers. With his leadership, the Center's communications initiatives have helped the organization's consulting, training, and evaluation teams gain a national reputation for successfully bridging the gap between the university and the community, between science and service, between policy and practice.

Mr. Kubek has been the lead author and project manager of several grant-funded projects of the Center, including the following: a website content-management system (CMS) funded by the Woodruff Foundation and the Eva L. & Joseph M. Bruening Foundation of Cleveland in 2002; a curriculum of educational booklets for Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment funded by the Woodruff Foundation and the Eva L. & Joseph M. Bruening Foundation of Cleveland from 2003 to 2006; and a LAMP-based website content-management system funded by the William J. and Dorothy K. O'Neill Foundation of Cleveland in 2010-2011.

Mr. Kubek is co-author of On Being and Having a Case Manager: A Relational Approach to Recovery in Mental Health with Jeffrey Longhofer, PhD, and Jerry E. Floersch, PhD, of the Rutgers University School of Social Work, published by Columbia University Press. He earned a Master of Arts in English at Cleveland State University in 1993.
