“When I was a college student, I was struggling in an intimate relationship I was forming, and it got to the point where I had to do something about it. So I went into the counseling center, and that’s what really turned me on—noticing the change within myself and the impact of counseling on the way we view our lives.”
That is the way Dr. Glenn Albright explains how he became interested in psychology in general and in counseling in particular. A native of Albany, New York, Albright received his bachelor’s in biology from Parson College in Iowa, his MS in physiology from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and his Ph.D. in psychology from the City University of New York. Today he is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College.
