Elena M. Doskey de Lobón, Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist in Texas and the Director of Clinical Training at Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center (DCAC) responsible for the Doctoral Psychology Internship Program. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the Center on Child Abuse and Neglect at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City, OK.
She is also certified and has received training in several empirically supported treatments for children with trauma-related disorders. In her role at the DCAC, Dr. Doskey de Lobón collaborates with other members of the multidisciplinary team including forensic interviewers, law enforcement, the district attorney’s office, and the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) among others. She is the within-agency trainer for Components for Enhancing Clinician Experience and Reducing Trauma (CE-CERT) at DCAC and is qualified as an expert witness and provides expert testimony on child abuse cases in Dallas County.
She proudly judges the caliber of a restaurant by whether they provide fountain Diet Dr. Pepper and is on a crusade to banish the inexplicable use of the comma without a coordinating conjunction to join two independent clauses.
