Robyn Igelman, PhD, is Treatment Outcome Coordinator and Registered Psychologist at the Chadwick Center for Children and Families, Rady Children’s Hospital and Health Center in San Diego, California. Dr. Igelman manages the Treatment Outcome Office to ensure that clinicians receive prompt, useable assessment feedback and are implementing the TAP model as part of their clinical practice. She is responsible for managing the assessment data from all sites within the trauma counseling program, training new staff including overseeing psychology doctorate students, evaluating the need for updating the assessment protocol, and coordinating the introduction of new assessments. Due to her expertise in assessments, Dr. Igelman is one of the primary on-site TAP trainers, especially when the site has not used an assessment protocol previously.  In addition, Dr. Igelman treats traumatized children as a clinician in the Trauma Counseling Program and is also the Clinical Coordinator for the Child Sexual Abuse Treatment contract through the County of San Diego.

Dr. Igelman received her doctorate in clinical psychology at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant University in San Diego.  Dr. Igelman has served as faculty on the Western Trauma-Focused CBT Learning Collaborative, sponsored by the National Center for Child Traumatic Stress at Duke University. She reviews manuscripts for publication in the Journal of Child Sexual Abuse and Child Abuse and Neglect. She has presented nationally on the topics of assessment and treatment of child abuse. She has published peer-reviewed articles in the field of child welfare and child maltreatment and co-edited a book on children exposed to interparental violence.
