Lisa Aronson Fontes, PhD

Lisa Aronson Fontes, PhD, has traveled the globe lecturing on topics ranging from the sexual abuse of children to intimate partner violence. Working in the field as a psychotherapist, researcher, and activist, Fontes discovered that many agencies fail to comprehensively address the needs of their immigrant and cultural minority clients. She has dedicated her career to filling this gap: helping the mental health, social service, criminal justice, and legal systems provide better services in communities of color—especially for victims of violence. She provides keynotes and workshops for medical and mental health professionals, police, social workers, and community members.
