Kristin Barker

Kristin has dedicated her career to improving young lives through direct service and broader system change. She recently moved to London from the United States where she provided trauma-focused mental health treatment to young people. She has extensive experience training professionals and community organisations on a variety of trauma-focused topics in order to increase empathy and improve skills among the child-serving workforce and improve systemic approaches to child welfare and mental health. In leadership roles, Kristin enjoys the challenge of cultivating resources and relationships, while removing barriers, to support the implementation of effective interventions to those most in need.
