Assistant Professor, George Mason University

Rachael D. Goodman, Ph.D., LPC, has served as an Assistant Professor in the Counseling and Development Program at George Mason University since 2010. Dr. Goodman’s work is grounded in social justice and multiculturalism, with a focus on trauma counseling. She utilizes community engaged research methods, including community based participatory research (CBPR), to critically co-investigate the needs of marginalized communities, develop collaborative interventions and advocacy actions, and build on existing strengths and sources of resilience. Working in partnership with refugee and undocumented immigrant communities, Dr. Goodman and her partners have identified the cumulative and intersecting sources of stress and trauma, structural and ecosystemic barriers and supports, and community-based interventions to bolster resilience and resistance. - See more at: https://www.counseling.org/continuing-education/webinar-information/counseling-refugees#sthash.TpJJNAD3.dpuf
