Psychology student, alumnus and faculty featured in latest issue of disciplinary magazine

The March 2016 issue of Psychology Today, which for nearly 50 years has served as a primary resource both for psychology professionals looking to stay up-to-date on industry best practices and individuals seeking psychological care, includes two articles featuring contributions from SUNY New Paltz’s psychology community.

The Big Stall,” by Psychology Today Editor at Large Hana Estroff Marano, is a thought-provoking meditation on national studies into the disconcerting trend of young men in America falling behind in education and the economy. The article includes prominent contributions from Benjamin Crosier ‘10g (Psychology), a New Paltz graduate who went on to earn his Ph.D. and accept a position at Dartmouth College, and Richard Holler ‘16g (Psychology), currently working toward completing his master’s degree.

Psychology Department Chair Glenn Geher, a regular contributor to Psychology Today, makes an appearance in this story, and also in another article by Carlin Flora, “It’s Not About You,” which encourages readers to escape negativity by seeking awe in the external world.

How does Geher achieve that sublime state of being? “Seeing our student and alum in the magazine featured so prominently – that gives me the awe experience!”
