Dr. O’Connor is a Clinical Psychologist. He is a Distinguished Professor, Coordinator of the Ecosystemic Clinical Child Psychology Emphasis and Director of the Ecosystemic Play Therapy Training Center at Alliant International University – Fresno. He is the author of numerous books including The Play Therapy Primer, 2nd Edition and co-author of Play Therapy Treatment Planning and Interventions, 2nd Edition, and co-editor and Play Therapy Theory and Practice, 2nd Edition. He regularly presents workshops across the United States and abroad having presented in Canada, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, the Netherlands, Mexico, Portugal, Singapore, and South Africa. Finally, Dr. O’Connor is a Board Certified Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychologist and Fellow of the American Psychological Association who maintains a small private practice treating children and adults.
Dr. O’Connor’s primary area of research and clinical interest is the ecosystemic context of the practice of psychology. This includes two elements. One is the conceptualization of the impact of a person’s entire personal and ecological
experience on his or her ability or inability to cope at any given point in time. The other is the need for psychology to consider those ecosystemic variables in all aspects of case conceptualization, treatment planning and implementation in order to be effective. As such Dr. O’Connor has been particularly interested in all diversity issues but most specifically ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation. One example of this multi or ecosystemic focus is the research he conducted on therapists’ attitudes toward the acceptability of gay and lesbian therapists working with children.
