Instructor:

Dr. Benjamin Keyes, Ph.D., Ed.D.

Dr. Benjamin B. Keyes, born in Virginia, grew up in a typical Jewish family and, since his youth, was consecrated to God and the search for a deeper relationship with Him. Such motivation was attained through honest questioning and fearless exploration as instructed by a Rabbi from Hebrew School. He also greatly values education and learning and since finishing a Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling at the University of South Florida in 1978, he has attained 5 doctorates. He completed in first doctoral program in Theology in 1985 after sitting on his dissertation for five years. Dr. Keyes then went on to complete a specialization in Theology, three more Doctorates (Theology, Ministry, and Counseling Psychology), and received an Honorary Doctorate in Divinity (DD). For Dr. Keyes education has been a wonderful way to expand horizons and foster understanding. Additionally, he has had an extensive career in a wide variety of venues including the classroom. Moreover, he has worked in the field of counseling and ministry, coming up through the ranks of government and private agencies, hospitals, residential treatment centers, partial hospitalization programs, churches, training facilities, and private practice.

In the last few years, research has captured his attention with most of the focus targeted at Dissociative Identity Disorder and both Christian and secular applications to healing. He assisted in developing the Center for Trauma Studies here at Regent with one of the programs aimed at training graduate students to be first-responders in situations of natural disasters and/or man-made disasters. Because of his belief that Jesus Christ is very alive in third world nations and his understanding of the need for workers equipped with His heart, alliances have been formed with Global Aid Network, Operation Blessing, and the American Green Cross to train and certify students with skills they will take into their respective careers. He hopes to continue to develop the Center for Trauma Studies and to do what he can to fulfill the university's ultimate goal of equipping Christian leaders to change the world.
