NEWPORT, R.I. – Dr. Judith Broder, a psychiatrist who founded The Soldiers Project, which offers free and confidential counseling to war veterans and their families, will discuss “The Hidden Wounds of War: Psychological and Spiritual Crises” at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 7 in the Bazarsky Lecture Hall.
Free and open to the public, Bazarsky Lecture Hall is located in O’Hare Academic Center on Ochre Point Avenue.
Dr. Broder’s lecture is part of the Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy’s “Making Difference” lecture series.
The Soldiers Project reaches out to veterans groups, Veterans Affairs offices, military bases and community venues and offers free, confidential, individualized counseling to members of the military and their loved ones at private offices throughout Southern California, with affiliated groups in New York, Seattle and Chicago.
Broder received her medical degree from the University of Chicago School of Medicine. She has held numerous teaching positions, with her most recent being at the Los Angeles Institute and Society of Psychoanalytic Studies, and has chaired a number of committees at the psychoanalytic Center of California.
The Pell Center’s “Making Difference” lecture series follows the principle that one small change can lead to larger influence. With topics such as environmental policy, global ethics, the role of music and support for war veterans and their families, the lecture series seeks to challenge how each of us, in our own way, can be the change we wish to seek in the world.
