p>Dr. Michael A. Gray is a family descendent of English Tudor-era monarchy and of Sir John Locke, physician and philosopher. Locke is considered by some to be the “father of English psychology” with his work provided the initial concepts that led to the formation of psychology-both as a science and a disciple. His concept of “self” has been expanded on throughout the centuries and is a hyphenated conceptual expression of psychology, in action, in our modern world.
Dr. Gray has endeavored, for his part, to utilize over 17+ years of college-based education in various fields of all stages of collegiate-degreed programs (in political science/legal studies, leisure and recreational therapy concentration, and counseling psychology @ multiple degree levels (MSCE and Doctor of Education). This utility of this, and other trainings, is based on a self-felt need to continue the “family business” of psychology as an on-going interest. He uses his college education, occupational trainings, and self-study; as well as long-term mental health service provision to various populations, to consider the human condition.
His work serves to share his concerns regarding psychology of “self” and for the sustainability of humanity. This concern leads to his writings regarding the need for, yet current departure from, a Judeo-Christian spiritual lifestyle. This is his contention as it relates to the secular, humanistic majority of western civilization in the present era. These interests have been served by a primary, additional application of an adult-life personal study of scriptural prose.
