Douglas Fogel, Psy.D, has been in full-time clinical practice for the past fourteen years. He has presented a number of training seminars on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) at a nationwide level and is currently co-leading an ACT on Life group which is targeted towards teaching ACT principles to people in the local community.
He worked for ten years at Johns Hopkins University (JHU) as a Counseling Center clinician, supervisor of pre-doctoral interns and an adjunct professor for the JHU Psychology Department. More recently, Dr. Fogel has been working in private practice and is a teacher/supervisor for practicum students in the Clinical Psychology doctoral program at Loyola University.
Dr. Fogel is finishing his first book titled Why Psychotherapy Works (And How to Do It). An overarching focus of the book, which has a strong ACT influence, is on establishing greater emotional integration with the goal of increasing behavioral flexibility and willingness as successfully doing this allows clients to take their lives in a more values-oriented direction.
