Dr. Janine Roberts is Professor Emerita, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and past-president of AFTA (American Family Therapy Academy). “The first families I saw back in the 70s were in court-mandated sessions done in people’s homes. I went on to supervise several teams in the area that worked in clients’ living spaces, as well as train Masters and Doctoral level family therapists at UMASS for 25 years. I currently see families in my home.” Janine authored Tales and Transformations: Stories in Families and Family Therapy (Norton Press); coauthored Rituals for Our Times: Celebrating, Healing, and Changing Our Lives and Our Relationships (Jason Aronson); coedited Rituals in Families and Family Therapy (Norton Press); and has written some seventy articles and chapters, and a poetry book, The Body Alters (Slate Roof Press). She has had two Fulbrights to Latin America and works frequently there as well as other parts of the world. Contact Janine here.
