Our speaker is Terence (Terry) Keane, one of the world’s leading clinical scientists in the field of traumatic stress. Terry is Professor of Psychiatry and of Clinical Psychology at Boston University where he is also Assistant Dean of Research in the Medical School. Keane is also the Associate Chief of Staff for Research and Development at VA Boston Healthcare System and Director of the National Center for Posttraumatic Stress Disorder’s Behavioral Science Division. He last visited Binghamton University for commencement, 2015, when he was presented with an honorary Doctor of Science degree in recognition of his myriad accomplishments, international renown, and dedication to Binghamton University. I hope you share my pride in his visit, because Terry is one of our highest profile graduates, a member of the initial class of clinical psychology doctoral students in 1973. Terry’s talk is entitled, “Contributions of Psychological Science to the Understanding and Treatment of PTSD”. His life’s work includes the development of the major instruments for the psychological assessment and diagnosis of PTSD, the creation and dissemination of an evidence-based treatment, and consultation internationally with governments trying to address the impact of trauma on their citizens following major catastrophic events (including 9/11).
