Mary Jankowski, PhD
Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Geisel School of Medicine, Dartmouth
Dr. Mary Jankowski has worked for the past 20 years in the field of trauma and its effects, with the last 12 specifically in the area of child and adolescent trauma. She has directed many projects, including developing and testing new treatment interventions, implementing trauma-informed best practices, disseminating evidence-based practices into “real-world settings”, and transforming child-serving systems to bring a more trauma-informed approach to care for children, youth and their families. Dr. Jankowski has worked closely for the past 8 years with both child-serving state systems and community-based agencies across the State of NH to better address the needs of traumatized children and families through improving referral practices, identification, and screening, improving collaboration across stakeholders and increasing availability of evidence-based trauma treatment practices. She is a certified trainer for Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) and has trained clinicians across New England for more than a decade. Dr. Jankowski also has served as a faculty lead for a state-sponsored learning collaborative to create a more trauma-informed child welfare system in the State of CT. Most recently, she has focused on better understanding the impacts that NH’s opioid crisis has had on children and families, and the needs of the System and the child-serving workforce more broadly. Dr. Jankowski has just been awarded a new grant to address the complex needs of substance- and trauma-affected families and bring Wraparound and other evidence-based services to families with caregiver SUD.
