Anne Eisner
Coordinator (TLPI)

Anne is the Deputy Director of the Trauma and Learning Policy Initiative (TLPI). A licensed social worker, she leads the project’s policy work and, along with Joe Ristuccia, its work with educators. The focus of both these efforts is to build and sustain safe and supportive, trauma-sensitive schools. Anne convenes the Safe and Supportive Schools Coalition and serves on the Brockton Trauma Advisory Board, as well as other school and mental health work groups. She also was an active participant in the work of the Behavioral Health and Public Schools Task Force, whose recommendations will be enacted through the pending legislation, An Act Relative to Safe and Supportive Schools.

For 26 years before coming to TLPI, Anne provided and supervised home-based clinical services to families and children impacted by domestic violence, child abuse and neglect. She helped to develop an innovative treatment approach that included care coordination and advocacy along with intensive clinical services. That experience and perspective of maintaining a systemic focus while providing services to individual families are well-aligned with and inform her current work with TLPI.

Anne has a Master’s degree and holds the following licenses: LCSW, LMHC, and LMFT.
