Mr. Robinson’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 multisource feedback, children’s mental health, scale development, machine learning, user experience design, and data visualization. Prior to joining the Center for Addictions Research and Services, Mr. Robinson created a patent-pending 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 an Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Social Work at Boston University, specializing in Entrepreneurship and the Innovation Process.
