Eduardo Duran, PhD is a psychologist and veteran of the US Navy submarine force and he is pretty amazing. He’s one of those individuals that makes you think, “Yes, he’s someone I want working to help people who’ve been traumatized.” He is one of the first people to write and bring attention to soul wounding also known as historical trauma.
Ed’s therapeutic work includes a healing philosophy that is deeply ingrained in Indigenous worldviews. He travels to many tribal communities all over the world in order to bring awareness and validate Indigenous clinical and research methods. He has authored 3 books and many papers dealing with soul wounding and how western approaches can be enhanced by integrating cultural responsive strategies into our work.
