Wynn Schwartz did his undergraduate studies at Duke University and received his Ph.D. in clinical and experimental psychology at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He trained as a research psychoanalyst at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute. Currently, he is a member of the core faculty of The Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology and the faculties of Harvard Medical School and Harvard Extension School. Previously, he was a professor at Wellesley College and has taught at the Boston Psychoanalytic Society and Institute and the Massachusetts Institute of Psychoanalysis.
Wynn maintains a psychotherapy and supervision practice in Boston where he works with individuals and couples. His conceptual research has focused on fundamental aspects of the concept of person (human or otherwise), the concepts of action and responsibility, and empathic action. He has conducted experimental studies on dreaming and hypnosis especially as these states and practices involve problem representation, world maintenance and world construction. A student of Descriptive Psychology, Wynn’s work concerns conceptual, pre-empirical and theory-neutral formulations that facilitate the identification of the full range of a subject matter with a goal of providing tools for a systematic, rule following guide to social construction. Currently, Wynn is the President of The Society for Descriptive Psychology.
