Profile

Bio

Stephen Bindman has had a varied career as a Psychologist and has maintained a strong interest in describing the human condition in a scientific manner. A reflection of this can be seen in two early publications, The Myth of Adolescence, and Love Without Illusions.

After receiving his PhD in Clinical Psychology from UCLA, he accepted a joint appointment at the University of Texas, at Austin, which was oriented toward experimental psychology. There in the 1970's he became interested in the Human Potential movement and new methods in psychotherapy. He then associated himself with the leaders of the Association for Humanistic Psychology at Psychological Service Associates. They were pioneers who were interested in new methods in group and individual psychotherapy, including sensitivity training in industry and public service organizations. As the humanistic psychology movement became increasingly oriented towards new age spiritual and transpersonal psychology. Dr. Bindman returned to more scientific interests in psychology and became increasingly active as a forensic psychologist, as a way to combine scientific data with applied interventions.
Most recently, concerned about the effects of the current Bush administration and Congress on the USA, and the world, he returned to some of the political interests he had as an undergraduate, particularly following the works and the spirit of George Orwell. This has meant addressing a variety of social and political issues bearing on the nature of the economic and social environment with a hope of describing it free from the usual prejudices of both the left and the right. He wrote regularly on these issues for the Los Angeles Free Press in 2005 through 2007. He is also now a Senior Research Fellow at the Council for Hemispheric Affairs.
