Bio:

Debra Sosin has over 45 years of clinical and educational experience working with children, families, educators, and systems. As a special educator for children with serious mental health concerns and later as a clinical social worker and administrative leader, she has integrated the mental health, educational, and concrete needs of children and their families — while working in public and private schools, mental health clinics, early education settings, hospitals, and human service agencies. She is currently the Senior Mental Health Consultant for Family Connections, an early childhood mental health consultation and professional development program, at BTC. She directed the program for seven years. She is also a BTC National Facilitator.

Previously, Debra served as Associate Executive Director of Programs at a human services agency, providing clinical, educational, and administrative leadership for child, youth, and family programs. She was instrumental in implementing an early childhood mental health consultation program for the agency’s early education program. She also served as Director of Child & Adolescent Services at a New Hampshire community mental health center, where she developed a Family Support Services unit, one of the first in New Hampshire's mental health system.

Throughout her career, Debra has been committed to the well-being of all children, their families, and early care professionals, particularly those struggling with mental health issues, adversity, and the impact of trauma. Trauma-informed care, a strengths-based approach, and family engagement have been at the core of her work.
