About the Author:

Lead editorBonnie L. Green, PhD, is Professor of Psychiatry, and Director of Research and Trauma Studies, at Georgetown University Medical School in Washington, DC, where she teaches psychiatry residents and conducts research. She has studied the consequences of traumatic events, including disasters and war, for several decades. Her research at Georgetown has focused on the psychological and physical health consequences of individual traumas experienced by women, including breast cancer, traumatic bereavement, and interpersonal violence. Her recent research focus is the mental health needs of poor women with serious trauma histories who receive their health care in settings serving low-income patients. These include NIMH-funded treatment studies targeting depression or PTSD in primary care. In another NIMH grant, she is studying relationships between patients and providers, how these may be affected by the patient's trauma history and attachment style, and what supports providers might need to help manage patients with trauma-related mental health problems. She is also involved in developing educational and coping interventions for traumatized women in primary care in collaboration with community partners. Dr. Green is past Editor of theJournal of Traumatic Stress, and past President of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.
