Rebecca Fix, PhD, is an assistant professor working in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health within the Department of Mental Health, and a faculty affiliate of the Moore Center for the Prevention of Child Sexual Abuse. She is also a licensed clinical psychologist who has done therapy with survivors of trauma, including adolescents in carceral systems for illegal sexual behavior. Her research focuses on promoting mental health equity and equity in legal outcomes within the juvenile legal system and on interrupting pathways from childhood maltreatment to use of sexual and physical violence during adolescence. Dr. Fix has over 60 peer-reviewed publications, the majority of which are first authored publications, and her work has been funded by federal and local organizations as well as through competitive internal funding mechanisms. In recognition of her expertise, Dr. Fix has been invited to consult with the Southern Poverty Law Center and Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.
