About This Site

Storied Conduct is both a collection of multiple online resources and a weblog devoted to highlighting newly published research and commentary in the fields of psychology and allied disciplines (such as psychiatry, neuroscience, and the social sciences). The audience for Storied Conduct is two-fold: first, my undergraduate students at Le Moyne College who may be asked to read and reflect upon contemporary research in the areas of their coursework with me and, secondly, myself as audience, i.e., this site serves as a resource for me to retrieve materials I find important for my own work. Of course, anyone else who is browsing the Internet is very welcome to scan these bits of news or to search through the links provided here.

Individuals and libraries who are accessing the Net should feel free to link to this site. Note that the contents of or commentaries in individual blog items are copyright by me and should be cited if reproduced elsewhere.

About the Editor

Vincent Hevern Photo

My name is Vincent W. Hevern, SJ, Ph.D. I am a Professor of Psychology at Le Moyne College, Syracuse, New York. I did my doctoral training in the graduate clinical psychology program at Fordham University beginning in the late 1970s. During most of the 1980s, I worked as a clinical psychologist in New York City and provided clinical assessment and therapeutic services to a largely adolescent group of clients and their families. In the early 1990s, I assumed my current position at Le Moyne College as a full-time instructor and have taught a broad range of undergraduate courses in psychology. These have included Introductory Psychology, Abnormal Psychology, Abnormal Psychology for Health Professionals, Brain and Behavior (Biopsychology), Learning, Counseling and Psychotherapy, Psychological Testing, History and Systems of Psychology, and two senior seminars in Clinical Neuropsychology and Psychology and Story: The Narrative Basis of Human Conduct. I served for some years as the course instructor and supervisor for our year-long senior field experience course and have also co-led the senior course for the College's Honor's program. From 1997 to 2001 I was chair of our school's Psychology Department. My primary scholarly interests these days involve (1) narrative perspectives in psychology and the social sciences and (2) the presentation of the self in on-line environments. Beginning in 1996, I served as the Electronics Materials Coordinator and, then from 1999 until 2005, as first Internet Editor for the Society for the Teaching of Psychology (STP), Division 2 of the American Psychological Association (APA). I am a Fellow the APA and also the Secretary-Treasurer for 2012-2015 of the Society for the History of Psychology (Division 26 of APA). I am also a member of Cheiron, the International Society for the History of the Behavioral and Social Sciences; the International Society for Dialogical Science; and the Media Ecology Association. I have been licensed as a Psychologist by New York State since 1985. More generally, I have also been a member of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) for 45 years and a Roman Catholic priest since 1976.
