Jessica P. Greenwald O’Brien earned her doctorate in clinical and forensic psychology at the University of Nebraska in 1993. Her post-doctoral training in trauma and family forensics took place through the Victims of Violence Program at The Cambridge Hospital and the Children and the Law Program at Massachusetts General Hospital, both affiliated with Harvard Medical School. She presently is in private practice, blending her interest and expertise in trauma both into her forensic work and into her consulting work in schools. Her private practice includes forensic evaluations with youth and families (child protection, delinquency, and family court matters), and training and consultation in various school districts. She is a co-author of Helping Traumatized Children Learn, and has conducted trainings and professional development on related topics for school districts, state agencies and policy makers. She is the co-editor of the Framingham Public Schools Teachersâ€™ Strategies Guide for Working with Children Exposed to Trauma.
