Dr. Roderick Logan believes, and his life’s work reflects, that human suffering is not a fate to be borne, but a challenge to be overcome. He is a Senior Faculty member at the Arizona Trauma Institute, also known as the Trauma Institute International. For more than 35 years, he has worked with men, women, and young people from all walks of life, providing counseling and education; guiding them to reclaim life’s purpose and meaning. Dr. Logan is a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, a Certified Family Trauma Professional, and a certified facilitator in Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy.
At his heart, Roderick is a teacher fighting ignorance and apathy. He believes those who teach and train others need to be taught and trained themselves. Roderick’s teachers and mentors include; Dr. Robert Rhoton, Dr. Eric Gentry, and Dr. Bruce Perry. His experiences include working with and advocating for children, young people, parents, educators, professional and non-professional caregivers; from juveniles in lockup at California’s Youth Authority in the early 80’s to more recent work with the Arizona Department of Child Safety, the Arizona Department of Corrections, and multiple community service organizations serving at risk populations. Dr. Logan’s prolific platform coupled with his training uniquely qualifies him as an authority on trauma-informed care, principles for resiliency building, and pathways for living the optimum life.
Roderick and his wife, Melody, have been married for more than 40 years. Together they raised two sons and a daughter and have eight grandchildren. Roderick holds that the core of self-regulation and self-care is found in one’s practice of self-reflection, consequently he is known among family and friends as, “the man in a rowboat rowing backwards into the future.”
