She is responsible for trauma informed developmental and behavioral services from birth through the lifespan.
Dr. Murphy, along with partners in Einstein’s Dept of Family and Social Medicine and the Center for Attachment Research at the New School is in the final year of a randomly controlled clinical trial funded by HRSA to test the effectiveness of the Group Attachment Based Intervention (GABI), an intensive parent-child treatment, in helping parents break the intergenerational cycle of abuse and neglect that they experienced in childhood, thus, creating positive social emotional and developmental outcomes for their children.
Dr. Murphy and her research team received a grant from The New York State Foundation to train 10 New York non-traditional sites to deliver GABI. She is a member of the Early Identification of Risk, Frontiers of Innovation sub-Committee of the Center for the Developing Child at Harvard University and member of the John’s Hopkins Learning Collaborative entitled: Strengthening the Role of Primary Care in an Integrated System Serving Families with Young Children Experiencing Trauma or Chronic Stress. The goal of these projects is to screen and intervene early with parents with significant adverse childhood experiences to impact the lives of their very young children. Dr. Murphy has published on ACEs and the impact on parent-child relationships. She has presented her work at local, national and international conferences.
