“I was always interested in people. I think I could have been a clinical psychologist who talks to people about their problems and tries to help them. But at some point, I shifted toward understanding people’s backgrounds and issues, so I ended up in industrial organizational psychology. I always had a bent towards working with people, trying to understand and help them.”

That’s the way Dr. Harold Goldstein explains how he became the psychologist he is today. A native of Columbus, Ohio, Goldstein got his bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, his master’s and doctoral degrees in industrial/organizational psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park, and today he is a professor of psychology in the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences at Baruch College/CUNY.
