M.D. is a Research Fellow at the department of Psychiatry, Harvard
University. He specializes in the treatment of severe trauma, especially
victims of war and refugees. He has run trauma clinics, coordinated
training programs for clinicians from war zones on behalf of USAID, and
spent nearly a year in the Balkans developing local responses to the
post-war reconstruction effort in that region. Woodall’s clinical work
has informed his academic research into the consequences of severe
trauma on the formation of the social identity and ethics of survivors.
