About Our Presenter
Robert J. Wicks, a prolific author and clinical psychologist specializing in the intersection of spirituality and psychology will share lessons in resilience and self-care learned and shared over the past 30 years with helping and healing professionals in the fields of health care and ministry.

Together, he and his clients have taken the perspective that “difficult times can offer graced moments in a more striking way than the good times can.” As a faculty member at Loyola University Maryland, as well as a speaker and teacher at other universities and professional schools of psychology, medicine, nursing, theology, and social work throughout the world, he has guided students and professionals in discovering how to value their strengths, develop a practice of mindfulness, and take charge of their self-care. He received his doctorate in Psychology from Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital.

Dr. Wicks’ major area of expertise is the prevention of secondary stress which encompasses the pressures encountered in reaching out to others. He integrates sound psychology and basic spiritual truths to set the stage for profound personal transformation. He has cultivated this experience through research and clinical practice with psychotherapists, physicians, nurses, educators, relief workers, lawyers, corporate executives and persons in full-time ministry.
