MARCH 3, 2010

Portrait of Linnie Green Wright

We are pleased to announce that Linnie Green Wright will be joining the GSSW Children, Youth, and Families Concentration this Fall. Linnie is currently in the final phase of her dissertation at the School Psychology Program at New York University. She earned an MA in Developmental Psychology at Columbia Univesity with a concentration on risk and resiliency. She has a BA in Psychology from Spelman College.

Linnie's dissertation focuses on an intervention for low-income, African-American preschool families. She is currently the Project Manager for PEARLS, a NIH funded study at NYU that focuses on how Black families foster the social and academic success of young children in low-income communities. It is Linnie's intention to pilot her intervention program with Boston families while continuing her collaboration with partner communities and agencies in NYC.
