Mark Kunkel, Ph.D.

Dante was right - heaven and hell are about circles. The circling that brought me to West Georgia runs around a life-long appreciation for psychology as philosophy, science, social heuristic, and treatment modality, but mostly as a path through life. I lived and worked in Yucatan, Mexico (a second hearth), and worked in directing two doctoral programs in counseling psychology before coming to the-then State University of West Georgia on sabbatical in 1999. When I was invited the following year to give up tenure, take a pay cut, and commute 100 miles each way from Auburn, I jumped at the chance. And for the last years here I have enjoyed the kindest and wisest colleagues, and the most apt and adequate student classroom companions, that anyone could wish. I am a grateful guy. I am in the process of finishing two texts, one a compilation of allegories related to teaching and psychotherapy and supervision, and the other a free Open Educational Resource, Introduction to Introduction to General Psychology (available here). What joy I find in my vocation! In addition to my university work I practice (which is to say, never get right) psychology in psychotherapy and assessment, and enjoy these involvements as well. I enjoy music, cooking, dogs and cats, living in the country where I can see the stars, walking and bicycling, fatherhood, and I savor the fierce, healing, and refining companionship of my wife Jeanette.
