About Dr. Rick Reinkraut EdD, CAGS, PhD, MA, BA

Dr. Rick ReinkrautDr. Reinkraut is a Professor Emeritus in the Division of Counseling and Psychology in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Lesley University. Dr. Reinkraut has an abiding interest in the obligations and challenges of the role of counselor educators as gate-keepers to the profession of mental health counseling.

“My belief is that theories inform but relationships heal. A challenge of each therapeutic relationship is developing a relational engagement that responds to the particular needs of the particular client.”

Dr. Reinkraut’s recent scholarly interests focus on identity as a narrative construction that emerges from within a cultural context and the impact of moral positionality on a therapist’s use of self.
