Raskin-presenting-2015I am a professor of psychology and counseling at the State University of New York at New Paltz.

My research focuses on constructivism in psychology and counseling. Constructivists assume that people never know the world independent of a perspective or framework. Thus, they study how people construct meaningful ways to understand themselves and their world. I am managing editor of the Journal of Constructivist Psychology.

I am co-chair of the Global Summit on Diagnostic Alternatives (dxsummit.org), a combined effort of the American Psychological Association’s Society for Humanistic Psychology and the British Psychological Society’s Division of Clinical Psychology. Our mission is to develop, evaluate, advocate, and disseminate alternatives to current mental health diagnostic systems. I have written a brief piece that overviews some of the work we are doing.

I am also licensed as a psychologist in New York, where I maintain a small private practice.
