We are thrilled to welcome Dr. Kenneth Miller to ECPS.
Dr. Kenneth Miller is appointed the Edith Lando Professor in Counselling for Refugee and Immigrant Youth and Families. The appointment will commence on June 1, 2022 for a five-year term.
Throughout his career, Dr. Miller has taken a unique approach to academia, centering his research, teaching, and service as opportunities to effect change through working with non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in war-affected countries.
Dr. Miller is currently a Senior Researcher at War Child Holland, a Netherlands-based, international non-profit organization that works to improve the resilience and wellbeing of children living with violence and armed conflict. He joined War Child in 2015 to help establish the organization’s Research and Development Department, where he develops and evaluates psychosocial interventions for conflict-affected communities. Previously, Dr. Miller was an Associate Professor of Psychology at Lesley University (2012–14), Pomona College (2005–08), and San Francisco State University (2004–05) where he was initially an Assistant Professor (1999–2004). He has published extensively on the mental health effects of armed conflict and displacement, and co-edited the book The Mental Health of Refugees. His book War Torn explores resilience and its limits in six war-affected communities. He also writes a popular blog on PsychologyToday.com named The Refugee Experience.
