Winslow Robinson earned his Master of Science in Social Work (MSSW) from Columbia University, where he studied Advanced Clinical Practice specializing in Health, Mental Health and Disabilities. In his first-year MSSW internship, he worked at an inner city Middle School in the Bronx, studying Motivational Interviewing. Winslow’s second-year training took place at the New York State Psychiatric Institute Children’s Day Unit, learning and implementing Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in a program that bridged multimedia instruction and field education. Pursuant to his MSSW, he worked for two years as a consultant and clinician in the Boston Public School system, between roles as clinical supervisor and technology consultant at the Wediko Children’s Services Summer Program.
He brings a targeted interest in expanding technology across the helping professions, with research inquiry into parenting self-efficacy, evidence-based parent training, children’s mental health, design thinking, user experience, and data visualization. Prior to joining the Center for Addictions Research and Services, Winslow created a cross-platform mobile app for tracking observation and conversation between counselors and children with learning and behavioral challenges, which recently received funding for expansion. Presently he is working towards his Ph.D. in Social Work at Boston University, with a social entrepreneurial and innovation focus.
