The Faculty at PSP
Virtually all of the faculty members at the Professional School of Psychology have published major books or articles, while also serving full time as “working” professional psychologists. We attract an exceptional faculty in large part because of our student body and because these faculty members can continue their other work. All of our programs allow for the rich interaction that most theorists, researchers and practitioners seek in their professional lives. In many cases, our faculty members were themselves mature adults when obtaining their doctorate. They fully appreciate the challenges faced by their students and know how to bring the exceptional experiences and expertise of their students into the PSP community — just as they bring their own experiences and expertise into this unique community.
A Featured Faculty Member: Ravit Raufman, Ph.D.
Dr. Raufman is a clinical psychologist, group psychotherapist and supervisor, lecturer and faculty member at a major university in Israel (University of Haifa). She has received advanced degrees (summa cum laude) in both the fields of Clinical Psychology and Comparative Literature. Reflecting this diversity of background, Dr. Raufman has published many articles and books that blend psychology and literature, including Dreams and Fairy Tales, The Other Language and her soon to be published, Language and Experience in Psychodynamic Therapy. Her research areas include primary levels of mental organization, as well as psychoanalytic approaches to fairy tales and thought processes as expressed in literary products.
