Joanna Tucker

Joanna Tucker started her professional life as a probation officer, moving later to work with parents and babies as a psychiatric social worker in the field of child abuse. Her desire to work in a preventative capacity and in more depth led to her training as a psychotherapist. She holds Professional Membership with the West Midlands Institute of Psychotherapy.

Joanna has been involved with the Oxford Parent-Infant Project since 1999, in a variety of roles. Having retired from the post of Clinical Director she is enjoying doing some clinical work, supervision, training, and teaching infant observation for them. She has found that Video Interaction Guidance can enhance parent-infant psychotherapy with some families and help bring about positive changes in interaction in a timely way. She is a qualified Guider in Video Interaction Guidance, and an experienced trainee VIG Supervisor

Joanna is much in demand as a workshop facilitator, trainer, and lecturer on issues connected with infancy, attachment theory, and parent-infant psychotherapy. She teaches on several therapeutic and academic trainings, and has had a number of articles published.
