Dr. Goldfried's past work has been on the investigation of the process of change in psychotherapy, comparing different theoretical orientations for both common and unique processes. Currently, he is involved in clinical and research issues associated with gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals, and has developed a network of psychologists who have come out in open support of their lesbian/gay/bisexual/transgender family members. (For more information about AFFIRM: Psychologists Affirming their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Family, see: http://www.sunysb.edu/affirm). He is particularly interested in integrating research on lesbian/gay/bisexual issues into mainstream psychology, and mentoring future researchers to help further that goal.
He is cofounder of the Society for the Exploration of Psychotherapy Integration; founding Editor of In Session: Psychotherapy in Practice; Past President of the Society for Psychotherapy Research; and recipient of the American Psychological Association (APA) Division of Clinical Psychology's 1998 award for Distinguished Research Contributions to Clinical Psychology, the Division of Psychotherapy's award forDistinguished Psychologist in the year 2000, the 2001 APA Award for Distinguished Contributions to Knowledge, the 2002 Division 1 Staats Award for Contributions Toward Unifying Psychology, the 2003 Association for the Advancement of Behavior Therapy Award for Outstanding Clinical Contributions, the 2004 APA Award from the Society for the Study of Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Issues, and the 2005 Society for Psychotherapy Research Distinguished Career Award.
