Marti Erickson, Ph.D
In her long career at the U of M, Dr. Marti Erickson directed the Children, Youth & Family Consortium and the Harris Programs in Infant Mental Health. In 1986, Marti’s research on attachment and child abuse prevention led her to develop STEEP®, a home visiting model that still informs Marti’s speaking, here and abroad.
Throughout the 1990s, Marti worked closely with Vice President Al Gore on family policy, and she led a child rights training initiative in Tanzania, 2008 – 2011.
Marti appears regularly on KARE-TV News and, since 2006, has hosted the radio show and podcast, Mom Enough®, with her daughter, Dr. Erin Erickson.
