Are you interested in this incredibly fascinating field of psychology? Ever wonder why we think, feel and behave the way we do? Have you ever wondered what thoughts and feelings reside inside of us? Have you wondered how much of our personality is determined by our genes or environment? If you pondered these questions, then you are beginning to think like a “psychologist.” This blog might just be for you.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. First, I will give you my academic and work credentials. This will tell you a bit about what I do. As this blog evolves, I plan to share more of who I am.
My name is Steve Stein and I received my Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1977. I am an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the Madison Center’s UIU. I am also a licensed psychologist who has practiced psychotherapy in the Madison area for the past 37 years. I have worked with a wide range of psychological and psychiatric disorders utilizing eclectic approaches . I am very interested in the body-mind connection and have given numerous presentations locally and internationally on these topics. As an experienced practitioner, supervisor, and clinical director, I have advocated for better mental health awareness. I also created the NorthStar Day Hospital for Adolescents, which successfully treats severely mentally ill children in Dane County. I am in the process of creating a Day Treatment Center for young adolescents where students from UIU-Madison Center will receive extensive field work and internship experiences. Most importantly, I LOVE TO TEACH!
So, who are you? How can we make this blog relevant for you and our community? Have any questions? Plan on seeing posts on issues that are important and relevant to psychology.
I look forward hearing from you!
