As the director of field work, du Bois coordinates a national network of internship sites for the M.S.W. students at the School for Social Work, working closely with agency-based practitioners, supervisors, faculty advisers and students to develop, maintain and support a strong practice-focused clinical training program. Prof. du Bois has over 35 years of clinical experience with children and adults, having worked at the Clifford Beers Child Guidance Clinic in New Haven, CT, at the Student Mental Health Division at the University of Massachussetts in Amherst, MA and, since 1985, as a private practitioner serving individual adults and children. Her clinical work in recent years has focused most specifically on issues related to trauma and she is particularly interested in the integration of developmental theory and clinical practice.

Prof. du Bois has taught in the practice sequence since 1985 and also provides training for supervisors and faculty field advisers in support of their work in the field. She is an active member of the New England Consortium of Field Directors.
