Areas of Expertise
Business Psychology:

Interest in the psychology of the workplace developed from a variety of summer jobs, as Dr. Kaufman realized the ample opportunities to apply principles of psychology to our workplaces. Work can either be satisfying & nourishing to our human needs, or can be the source of issues that leave people feeling confused, angry, & depleted long after the work day is done.  Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, his early observations of workplace issues were derived from a variety of positions at the NY State Insurance Fund and the NY State Attorney General's office. After earning credentials in I/O Psychology, he worked with the Troy, NY Fire Department and Norfolk, VA's Human Resources assessment centers & affirmative action projects; developed programs for Newport News Child Protective Services & Employment Services for the Hard Core unemployed, & assorted retail projects. In Maine he has worked on the boards of many non-profits & offers LGBT advocacy.
