    Laurie Fields is a clinician, trainer, and researcher who specializes in the assessment and treatment of trauma including violent crime, traumatic loss, sexual assault, torture, and abuse. She is a Professor at the UCSF Trauma Recovery Center and has been with the University of California for 25 years. Dr. Fields is a licensed clinical psychologist and holds a dual doctorate in Clinical and Community Psychology. Her career is motivated by her personal experiences and by the desire to increase access and improve trauma-specific treatments for underserved groups including ethnic and sexual minority populations. Her research focuses on developing low-cost accessible therapies integrating the best of evidence-based practices in community settings for trauma. She is currently completing a study investigating how impaired trauma memory contributes to the treatment refractory nature of drug-facilitated sexual assault trauma. She is also primary investigator on a longitudinal treatment outcome study evaluating a novel treatment she developed for survivors of drug-facilitated sexual assault. This intervention addresses problems of existing evidence-based trauma-focused PTSD treatments when trauma memory is impaired, with applicability to other trauma types as well. She recently completed an award-winning project entitled "Communities Healing and Transforming Trauma" (CHATT) - a speakers’ collaborative and advocacy program that successfully facilitates posttraumatic growth among trauma survivors. Additionally, Dr. Fields is in development of a manualized therapy approach for treatment of PTSD in the primary care setting, shown to be a preferred setting for many Latino patients to access trauma therapy. She has published a number of articles and book chapters on trauma and related topics. She conducts workshops on vicarious trauma, burnout, wellness, and resilience, and has found that addressing this has been vital to her ability to sustain her own career serving trauma survivors over the last 25 years. Dr. Fields provides clinical services and teaches at the UCSF Trauma Recovery Center, and has a private practice providing consultation and adult psychotherapy.
