Jane’s research interests are practice-informed having developed through 25 years of clinical experience with children, youth, and families across multiple settings including: child welfare, domestic violence, child and family community services, hospital based child and adolescent mental health and school social work. Her current research focuses on the impact of trauma and expanded forms of adversity (including systemic racism, inequality and community violence) on academics, with a particular focus on adverse experiences of students who have been suspended or expelled from school. Her research generally falls within two broad areas of focus: 1) child and family mental health with subspecialties in early adversity and school success, and 2) clinical practice and education.
