Eric Arauz, MLER

Psych Congress Steering Committee Member; President, Trauma Institute of New Jersey, LLC; Adjunct Faculty Instructor, Rutgers University Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Piscataway, New Jersey

Considered one of the best pure orators in the United States, Eric Arauz is the lead trainer and international keynote speaker through his consulting firm, A.I.E., specializing in living with trauma/PTSD, suicide-related issues, child abuse, veterans issues, and addiction. Having suffered extensive child abuse at the hands of a father with mental illness, and his own institutionalization in 1995, Mr. Arauz speaks openly about his personal “triumph over the demons of substance abuse, child abuse, psychosis, and post-traumatic stress disorder” and how the mental health community can better serve their patients.    

Mr. Arauz holds a BA in American Studies from Rutgers University with High Honors and a Masters Degree from the Rutgers Graduate School of Management of Labor Relations. He is an adjunct instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at UMDNJ/Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, a Special State Officer on the New Jersey Governor's Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, a 2009 SAMHSA/US Dept. of Health and Human Services "Voice Award" recipient, and New York Times contributor. In 2012, Mr. Arauz published his first book, An American’s Resurrection.
