Psychology Today features New Paltz alumnus and graduate student

The April 2016 issue of Psychology Today includes two articles featuring contributions from a SUNY New Paltz alumnus, graduate student and faculty member.


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), an alumnus who went on to earn his Ph.D. and accept a position at Dartmouth College, and Richard Holler ’16g (Psychology) currently working on his master’s degree.

Psychology Department Chair Glenn Geher, a regular contributor to Psychology Today, appears in the 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.

For nearly 50 years, Psychology Today 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,  “Seeing our student and alum in the magazine featured so prominently – that gives me the awe experience,” said Chair Geher.
