Forensic and Clinical Social Work
Dependency & Judicial Program Development Specialist
Expert Witness in Dependency Court Issues


Jessica Skoglund-Williams has professionally worked in child protection & child welfare system since 1995. Aging out
of the foster care system, Jessica has a unique, clinical perspective on what helps families heal. Jessica holds a
core belief that all families deserve an opportunity to grow & heal together. Professionally, Jessica has been both a child
welfare case manager and child protection officer in the States of Minnesota, Nebraska, and Iowa.


Having both a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Social Work, Jessica’s clinical area of expertise is in trauma-informed care. Having had training in CBT, infant mental health, and research-based care, she specializes in treating children who are living in the child
welfare system. Because of her unique insight, Jessica helps her young clients understand that their past life experiences drive many of the choices and behaviors that they currently engage in. Using this knowledge, and processing the trauma that they have experienced, Jessica is able to assist her clients in making better choices as they move forward.

Jessica maintains a core belief that given the proper professional treatment and guidance, many families can heal together and restore their relationships with one another. Being an avid researcher, Jessica relies on the copious amounts of clinical research that has shown that when family healing occurs, maltreatment recidivism rates decrease and families increase their protective capacities over one another. As a result, families are left with tools that will forever change the core fundamental beliefs of the family system.

In 2006, Jessica became involved in developing the very first “model Court” within the State of Iowa. This project is now nationally recognized as “Family Treatment Court (Dependency Drug Court)”. Her model is nationally used today in many circuits throughout the United States. Jessica has been and is currently involved in policy writing, program development and program implementation within the Dependency Court System throughout the United States. Jessica’s knowledge of clinical research, policy, and judicial procedure has been instrumental in assisting with the development of the Therapeutically Supervised Visitation program within the Pediatric Behavioral Health Institute. Jessica’s passion continues to be aligned with the children in the child welfare system and the most valid researched methods that help them.
