Robert Marc Schwartz Ph.D. has been in professional psychology since the early 1970s, making contributions to research, clinical work, and professional practice.  Jokingly referring to his career as having experienced “the worst of both worlds,” Dr. Schwartz has had significant impact in both academic and clinical circles.

Dr. Schwartz’s academic research on the “States of Mind” model has gained international attention in clinical and positive psychology circles, and it is regularly discussed in leading psychology and psychiatry journals.  Dr. Schwartz also taught in various academic institutions including the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. 

Clinically, Dr. Schwartz has again found himself “riding multiple horses,” through his dedication to an integrative approach that spans across the psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral schools.  The very name for the group practice that he co-founded, Cognitive Dynamic Therapy Associates, speaks to his dedication to cultivating a professional clinical psychology that is diverse.  He also developed a clinical specialty as a certified sex therapist, which led to his co-founding the Kurtz Center for Love & Intimacy, one of the premier national training centers for sex therapy. 

Dr. Schwartz is equally devoted to his family and his faith. He is the father of four young men of whom he is very proud, and the husband of Amy, the love of his life. He currently splits his time between Jerusalem and Pittsburgh and he continues to write professional papers.  Please join us to celebrate Dr. Schwartz’s legacy.
