Join the conversation “live” with Dr. Ken Wilcox, Clinical Psychologist, Advocate and Philanthropist from Miami Beach. Florida, and make your views known to the world.

Compressed ICERM Radio Logo 1This episode focuses on the numerous challenges trauma survivors face in fragile and vulnerable regions of the world, especially in countries emerging from armed conflict and war. In post-war regions, many victims of violence, war and torture who suffer from severe posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are likely to have their rights violated, and are often left unprotected from, and exposed to, a continuum of violence perpetrated against them. Through the assistance of mental health care, many individuals have been able to find ways of healing from the atrocities committed against them. With the understanding of the needs of victims, many activists have also been advocating for laws and mandates to better protect the most vulnerable. In this episode, we will talk to Dr. Ken Wilcox, who has had the opportunity to work on the ground in many post-war countries, particularly in Cambodia, in order to get a first-hand account of the benefits of mental health and its implementation in nations effected by violence perpetrated not only by non-state actors, but also by their own governments.

Dr. Ken Wilcox received his doctoral degree in Psychology in 2001 from Nova Southeastern University and completed his APA internship with Greystone Park Psychiatric hospital, a maximum security forensic hospital in New Jersey. Since, Dr. Wilcox has been active in program development, media, and intervention in developing nations and here in the United States. His main focus has been on trauma, abuse, trafficking, sex crimes and rape; working with local authorities developing child protection laws and mental health programs for the victims. In the USA, he is active in similar as well as advocacy, LGBT rights and is a member of a large number of boards and philanthropic organizations.
