Genesis at the 2017 Annual APA Conference

August 7th, 2017

A few of our Genesis team members enjoyed attending and exhibiting at the American Psychological Association (APA) Convention this year in Washington DC (August 2–6, 2017).

I was honored to meet Dr. Philip Zimbardo at the APA Convention. Dr. Zimbardo is a psychologist and a professor emeritus at Stanford University. He has served as the President of the APA. He is known for his 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment and has since authored many notable works, including The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil and his TED talk on The Psychology of Evil. More recently, he has written on heroism.

I remember learning of the landmark Stanford Prison Experiment in my earliest Introduction to Psychology course at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Florida in 1986. It is sobering to realize that any of us can fall prey to abuse of power. In my academic career, I continued to revisit the Stanford Prison Experiment as an MA, Ed.S, and Psy.D. student, as well as teach about it in multiple psychology courses. In all my receptions to this experiment, I was deeply stirred and sometimes in tears. An overview of the Stanford prison experiment can be found at http://www.prisonexp.org/ .

Dr. Zimbardo notes on his website that he was born during the Great Depression (1933) and grew up in the Bronx in poverty, where he witnessed the interplay of good and evil. This influenced his interest in the human condition, the primary subject matter of his career as a social psychologist.

One of my areas of specialty as a psychologist is trauma recovery, and specifically helping clients who were traumatized during childhood. I have had the privilege in my counseling career to journey with courageous souls in the healing process. I have also personally experienced healing in my own life.

God heals all human diseases (Psalm 103:3). That includes physical, mental, relational, psychological, spiritual, and those of the soul. God alone understands the mystery of good verses evil in our world, lives, and our very human nature. Only God is responsible for redemption of all pain. The primary passage that informs my trauma recovery work is Genesis 50:20,

“What was intended for evil, GOD has used for good and the saving of many people.”
