Since 1986, Kathleen Cash, Ed.D. has been creating and conducting Community Narrative Practice programs in HIV and AIDS, sexual and reproductive health, children's rights, violence towards women and girls, and environmental education for adults and youth in Thailand, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Haiti, Uganda and the United States. Prior to that, she worked in education programs in Ethiopia, Indonesia, Thailand, Malawi, Bangladesh and the United States. Her work in narrative practice began in 1991 in Thailand, as one of the first HIV and AIDS research and education projects for representative women, through the auspices of the International Center for Research on Women, Washington D.C. Kathleen has received two Fulbright grants: one in 1988 as a lecturer in the Department of Non-Formal Education at Chiang Mai University, Thailand, and the other in 2004 to Uganda as an HIV/AIDS research fellow where her work focused on the relationship between domestic and sexual violence and the transmission of sexual disease. In 2007-2008, Kathleen received a Radcliffe Institute Research Fellowship. In July 2016, Kathleen Cash's book: Sex, Shame and Violence: A Revolutionary Practice of Public Storytelling in Poor Communities was published by Vanderbilt University Press.
