Bio

Dr. Corwin serves as Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Utah School of Medicine. He is board certified in Psychiatry, Child Psychiatry and Forensic Psychiatry. He has worked as a lecturer, consultant, evaluator and/or expert witness addressing child abuse cases throughout the United States and other countries including Canada, Great Britain, Europe, Israel, South Korea and Thailand. Dr. Corwin is a founder of the California and American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children (CAPSAC & APSAC), and the Ray E. Helfer Society and the Academy on Violence and Abuse (AVA). As liaison from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, he chaired the transition of the AMA’s National Advisory Council on Violence and Abuse into the National Health Collaborative on Violence and Abuse between 2009 and 2011. Dr. Corwin has ongoing interest in the evaluation, mitigation and prevention of the adverse health impacts associated with exposure to violence and abuse across the lifespan and currently serves as the President-Elect of the Academy on Violence and Abuse which is dedicated to increasing the education of health professionals about and research on the health impacts of violence and abuse. In 2012, he was re-elected to the Board of Directors of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children and described as the "Father of APSAC" by APSAC's first President, Jon Conte, PhD, during Dr. Conte's address on the history of APSAC celebrating its 25th Anniversary. In early 2012, the AVA released a new DVD for which Dr. Corwin served as the Executive Producer. That DVD, entitled the Adverse Childhood Adversity (ACE) Study, features plenary addresses by Drs. Vincent Felitti, Rob Anda and Frank Putnam along with individual interviews of Drs. Fetitti, Anda and David Williamson, the epidemiologist at the National Center for Disease Prevention and Research who first introduced Drs. Felitti and Anda in 1990 beginning the collaboration that became the ACEs Study. The DVD is over four hours long and is the most comprehensive description of the development and findings from the landmark ACEs Study on which there are now more than 60 publications. Dr. Corwin continues his teaching, networking, program development, professional society leadership, clinical and forensic consultation as a member of the Pediatrics' faculty at the University of Utah School of Medicine.
