Benjamin Roebuck will be providing a keynote presentation on Violence, Resilience, and Post-Traumatic Change. Based on research with victims and survivors from across Canada, this presentation will explore how people navigate the aftermath of violence, adapt in adversity, and change through the process.
Benjamin has been teaching in the Police & Public Safety Institute at Algonquin College since 2010. A full-time professor in Victimology and Public Safety, he serves as the Research Chair for the Victimology Research Centre housed within the Office of Applied Research, Innovation & Entrepreneurship (ARIE). Benjamin's professional passion is centered on resilience, having served on numerous committees and Boards of Directors for agencies supporting youth, survivors of violence, and people experiencing homelessness. Benjamin is the principal investigator for a national Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC)-funded study on victim services and vicarious resilience, as well as an SSHRC-funded study on COVID-19 and system responses to homelessness. His team's research on violence and resilience has been featured by national media.
