Rev. Frederick J. Streets, the Carl and Dorothy Bennet Professor of Pastoral Counseling at Wurzweiler School of Social Work, appeared on NY1’s recent coverage on the counseling services offered to family members of victims of the Haiti earthquake. Rev. Streets, a former chaplain of Yale University and senior pastor of the University Church at Yale from 1992-2007, has specialized expertise in serving those affected by large-scale trauma. As a consultant to the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma and in conjunction with the mental health community of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Rev. Streets helped implement a model for the psychiatric and pastoral care of Bosnian citizens traumatized by war. He has also helped provide clinical education to physicians, public health, social service and religious staff dealing with those traumatized by war in  Kosovo, Cambodia and Japan.
