SPC Faculty Honored for Academic, Community Achievements

By Rachel Judy | October 20, 2011

Regent University faculty continue to receive recognition for their outstanding work both as scholars and community leaders.

During a recent banquet, Dr. Ben Keyes, professor in the School of Psychology & Counseling (SPC), was recognized by Restoration Ministries for his research model that is being used to treat victims of human trafficking. "It was an honor to receive the Hope Award as Service Provider of the Year for a treatment model I have been developing over the last 25 years," Keyes said. "Restoration Ministries is using this model applied to survivors of human trafficking who are, at their core, sexual trauma survivors."

Keyes' model, HEART (Healing Emotional Affective Responses to Trauma), parallels current secular treatment for trauma but also integrates Christian growth and perspective.

Keyes also serves as the program director of Regent's Center for Trauma Studies.

Dr. Victoria Walker '09 (Education), director of continuing education & instructional and web technologies for SPC, was also recently recognized for her work with Virginia Beach, Va., public schools. Walker, who is also an adjunct professor in the School of Education (SOE), was elected vice chair of the Virginia Beach Schools Gifted Education Community Advisory Committee. Walker has served on the committee for three years.

The Virginia Beach Schools Gifted Education Community Advisory Committee is comprised of dedicated community members and parents living within the Virginia Beach school zones who desire to improve the education of the gifted students who attend Virginia Beach Schools.

"It is a tremendous honor that my committee members and the chairperson found that I am the right person to serve in this role," Walker said. "I am vested in the education of our students and feel that serving our schools in any capacity that enables us to create change for the better is important."

Walker teaches in SOE's doctoral and education leadership programs and also works with the SOE to provide conferences and seminars.
