TAP Developer Bio

Gail Mann, LCSW, has spent 15 of her 25 years of clinical experience as a psychotherapist at the Chadwick Center for Children and Families at Rady Children’s Hospital and Health Center, San Diego, California.  Ms. Mann served in a number of positions while employed at the Chadwick Center including Program Clinical Supervisor and Team Leader.  It was her wide range of experience serving hundreds of childhood trauma cases as a therapist, or as a clinical supervisor to staff on these cases, that lead to her being chosen to guide the clinical process as an author in the development of the TAP model.  Working side by side with Dr. Nicole Taylor Kletka, Dr. Alicia Gilbert, and Barbara Ryan, Ms. Mann worked to represent and define the type of trauma resolution work which had been successfully used by the staff of the Trauma Counseling Center for many years. 

Ms. Mann received her graduate degree in Social Work from University of Illinois.  She currently is in full-time private practice in San Diego County specializing in trauma and family therapies.
