About Dr. Oliver J. Morgan, Professor Scranton, PA , Counseling & Human Services University of Scranton

Oliver Morgan, Ph.D. is Professor of Counseling & Human Services in the Panuska College of Professional Studies at the University of Scranton (Scranton, PA). Since joining the full time faculty at the University of Scranton in 1990, Dr. Oliver has taught a variety of courses in both undergraduate Human Services and graduate Clinical Mental Health Counseling programs. He has responsibility for shaping courses in Addiction Studies as well as in Marital and Family Counseling.  He served as Department Chair from 1997-2009.

In the wider community Dr. Oliver began one of the first psychosocial oncology practices in Northeast Pennsylvania. For over ten years he and his colleagues and interns have served hundreds of patients struggling with cancer as well as their caretakers and loved ones.

Dr. Oliver was honored as the second Leahy Faculty Fellow in his College during the years 2002-2004 and was the University’s CASE Professor Nominee in 2008. He is a National Certified Counselor (NCC), a licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Pennsylvania (LMFT), Clinical Member (and former Approved Supervisor) of the American Association of Marital & Family Therapists, and a Master Addiction Counselor (MAC).

EDUCATION

He has had what can only be called a “diverse” education. He graduated from Fordham University (Magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa) with a Bachelor’s degree in English and Philosophy with a specialization in phenomenology. After a stint as a high school teacher (quite an education in itself!), he completed a Master of Divinity degree, followed by a Master’s in Marital and Family Therapy during which he had the great privilege of studying and working with Ivan Boszormenyi-Nagy, MD, one of the founders of family therapy. A few years later Dr. Oliver began and eventually completed a doctoral degree in Pastoral Psychotherapy at Boston University.

Dr. Oliver is the author of a new book, investigating the intersection of attachment theory, neuroscience, trauma and addiction:  Addiction, Attachment, Trauma, Recovery: The Power of Connection (WW Norton, 2019). He is also the editor/co-editor of five (5) other books, covering topics in Addiction Studies, Counseling & Spirituality, and Catholic Intellectual Thought.

He has authored or co-authored ten (10) book chapters and proceedings, covering topics that include Addiction, Pastoral Care, Spirituality, and clinical practice.  And, has published more than twenty-five peer-reviewed articles in the same range of topics and subject-matter.

SERVICE & LEADERSHIP ACTIVITIES
