Matt Blanchard, Ph.D. is a licensed Clinical Psychologist with a primary interest in the psychotherapy training, popular psychological discourse, and the ever-evolving concepts of mind and self. Matt is the author of Secrets and Lies in Psychotherapy (APA, 2019) with Barry Farber and Melanie Love, which compiles his online-interview research into why clients in therapy conceal, lie and avoid important topics such as suicidal ideation, substance use, sexual issues, and their feelings about therapy itself, with an emphasis on what therapists can do to foster honesty about these issues. Professor Blanchard spent five years with NYU's Counseling & Wellness Services seeing clients, running groups and supervising postdoctoral fellows. He is formerly an Associate Professor and the Director of Student Affairs for NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study. He has previously taught for NYU's Department of Applied Psychology, as well as first-year writing and research courses for the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
