AREAS OF EXPERTISE:

Trauma, trauma-informed care in organizations and service delivery systems

A licensed clinical social worker, Susan Green is co-director of the Institute on Trauma and Trauma-Informed Care, which is part of The Buffalo Center for Social Research.

She teaches or has taught courses in social work interventions with children, adults, families, groups and communities; trauma theory and treatment; risk and resilience; and diversity.

She is committed to the integration of theory with practice as she combines full-time teaching, training and consulting with others. “We now have tools to help people heal from trauma and to avoid retraumatizing those seeking help,” she says. “What an honor to be in a position of helping people recognize the possibilities in our work.”

Green was chosen for Health Leadership Fellows Program in the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York. The position recognizes her influence in community health and invests in her expanding role addressing the health of elders and children living in poverty. A trauma and family therapist, she is also certified as an EMDR therapist and certified in Advanced Critical Incident Stress Management and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
