Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I am interested in self-defeating behaviors and how people change. I have published books on these topics, as well as the self, the interface of psychoanalysis and the psychotherapies, and coping with death and endings. We are examining what is helpful in the psychotherapy of eating disorders, anxiety and depression, alcoholism, trauma, etc. A number of students are also presently looking at Facebook and other social media, examining personality characteristics that lead to postings and jealous reactions. My students and I have presented papers all over the world. We are currently expanding our research to include respondents from other parts of the world. I encourage students to pursue their own interests and hope to be of help in that process. I have a grant that can provide $1250 each year to a research student. Students interested should speak to me.
