In his clinical psychology internship at Queens Hospital Center’s Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Department, Jacob (more commonly known as Moshe) Weinger worked with elementary school children who had challenging psychological issues. “Kids came with a range of disorders spanning ADHD to PTSD, but the common denominator among them was that they all had some type of learning or behavioral disorder…We had children who are on the autism spectrum and those who just needed a little help getting ahead in school.” Most of them, he adds, were from low-income homes in Queens. “Some had sustained repeated abuse and neglect, and at least one (if not more) lived in a homeless shelter,” he said.

Yesterday’s Psychology Club speaker, Dr. Moses, spoke about the tension between memory which is private and representation which is the public memorial, and he grapples with the ethics involved in it. He questioned whether the ends of memorializing justify the often intrusive means. Dr. Moses worried that the true memory of his son, the private memories, would be somehow washed away by the media storm and the representation. It was a thought-provoking speech, but perhaps most moving was when Dr. Moses read the passage from his book describing the mass funeral for the victims with the parents sitting on the same benches their sons had sat upon and the bodies of the boys passing before them. “Clichéd as it might sound,” Joshua Goldstein, President of the Psychology Club, says, “hearing Dr. Moses speak reinforces the need to appreciate life. Because it can be taken away in a second.”

The Psychology Club welcomed Avi Golden to speak about Aphasia, a disorder in the part of the brain that controls language. In 2007 the then-33-year-old Golden suffered a stroke that left him unable to speak. Through a rigorous schedule of rehabilitation—including six hours in speech therapy every day—Golden regained the ability to speak, though with great difficulty and several limitations. For instance, Golden cannot remember names, at least as they pertain to speech itself. That is, other than members of his immediate family, if he sees someone, even a close friend, he can’t say their names. The information is still in his brain but trapped in the pathways between his memory and his ability to speak, so he could still write the name down on a piece of paper and then read it aloud. About 40 guys came to hear Golden, who still enjoys snowboarding and horseback riding as he did before the stroke,  talk about his condition and recovery.

When opportunity knocks, Moishy Gerstel answers. The Kew Gardens, Queens transplant (by way of Toronto) wrapped up his B.A. in Psychology (with a minor in Finance) at Lander College for Men in 2012, to the tune of a 4.0 GPA, having achieved membership in Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. Gerstel realized the next step toward pursuing a career in psychology would be earning his Psy.D., but also realized the application process alone was going to take months, a period he wasn’t willing to watch idly pass.

As soon-to-be LCM grad Cheskie Rosenzweig astutely observes, racism and prejudice in America have become relatively subtler to detect, but are far from eliminated in our consciousness. “It’s more about the smaller social biases that people have that they’re sometimes not even aware of,” he says.

The universe is constantly in motion, from the deepest galaxy to its tiniest atom. LCM Class of 2012 graduate Ariel Hochster put this idea into psychological practice while at Touro. Along with classmates and Professor Lieb Litman, the Queens native and current Kean University Psy.D candidate conducted groundbreaking research in the area of conjoined analysis. It’s a method that uses computer software to help parcel out surveyed responses to questions with myriad variables, rather than arriving at conclusions about human behavior through conventional, fixed experiments.
