Bob Woodruff joined ABC News in 1996 and has covered major stories throughout the country and around the world for the network. He was named co-anchor of ABC’s “World News Tonight” in December 2005. On January 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces, Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq. In February 2007, just thirteen months after being wounded in Iraq, Mr. Woodruff returned to ABC News with his first on-air report, “To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports.” The hour-long, primetime documentary chronicled his traumatic brain injury (TBI), his painstaking recovery, and the plight of thousands of service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan with similar injuries. Woodruff continues to cover traumatic brain injuries for all ABC News broadcasts and platforms and was honored with a Peabody Award in 2008 for his reporting on the subject.

As co-author of the best-selling In an Instant, Lee Woodruff garnered critical acclaim for the compelling and humorous chronicle of her family’s journey to recovery following her husband Bob’s roadside bomb injury in Iraq. Appearing together on national television and radio, the couple has helped put a face on the serious issue of traumatic brain injury among returning Iraq war veterans. Woodruff is currently a contributor for ABC’s “Good Morning America,” reporting on a variety of home and family related topics. Her second book, Perfectly Imperfect, a Life in Progress, was published in the spring of 2009.

Robert Jay Lifton is currently Lecturer in Psychiatry at the Harvard Medical School and the Cambridge Health Alliance. Until recently, he was Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Psychology, The City University of New York, at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, the Graduate School and University Center, and the Mount Sinai School of Medicine as well as Director of the Center on Violence and Human Survival at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. He had previously held the Foundations’ Fund Research Professorship of Psychiatry at Yale University for more than two decades. He has been particularly interested in the relationship between individual psychology and historical change and in problems surrounding the extreme historical situations of our era.  He has taken an active part in the formation of the new field of psychohistory. Lifton’s psychological research on apocalyptic violence began in mid-1995 with a focus on Aum Shinrikyo, the extremist Japanese cult that released poison gas in Tokyo subways. From September 11, 2001, he has been studying Islamist apocalyptic violence and American responses to 9/11, including their own apocalyptic tendencies. In 1966, together with Erik Erikson, he organized the Wellfleet Psychohistory Group. He has continued to host and moderate it as a working group since that time. Its participants have included innovative scholars who have contributed much to contemporary psychological and social thought. He has been an active member of Physicians for Social Responsibility since 1962, serving on its Board of Directors from 1981 to 1982 and 1984 to 1987. He is a founding member of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War (from 1980), which was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize in 1986.
