Point Scholar 2004 – 2008
Since completing his PhD in Clinical Psychology, John became an Assistant Professor at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology at Yeshiva University. In addition to teaching courses in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Yeshiva, he is continuing his research which investigates the social-cognitive mechanisms that may explain mental health difficulties of some stigmatized individuals (like gay men, individuals who are HIV-positive). He will use the results of this work to develop effective psychotherapeutic treatments capable of alleviating emotional difficulties and decreasing risk-taking behaviors in these populations.
