LEO Lecturer II

Laura L. Sanders

With a master's degree in social work from the University of Michigan, Laura Sanders has been an adjunct instructor in U of M's graduate program since 1996. She provides contractual and private therapy, consultation, training, supervision, and expert witness testimony in the areas of sexual abuse and other trauma, attachment and adoption, and issues of gender and sexuality. She finds effective therapy to be eclectic in nature, grounded in a combination of evidence-based approaches and enhanced by creative and relational interventions designed to address the needs of individual clients and families. Advocacy and community activism are fundamental to her role as a clinical social worker and integrated into all of her work. Most recently she is the co-founder of the Washtenaw Interfaith Coalition for Immigrant Rights, an all-volunteer organization that responds to needs of families and communities targeted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, detainments and deportations. Her presentation style is dynamic, including many case examples and experiential activities that invite participation.
