Fr. Vincent Hevern, SJ, received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Fordham University with emphases on the psychology of adolescence, diagnosis & assessment, and clinical neuropsychology. Before coming to Le Moyne, he worked as a clinical psychologist in New York City where he mostly focused upon the problems of adolescents and young adults. Since coming to Le Moyne in 1991, Fr. Hevern has taught a wide range of courses including Introductory Psychology, Brain, and Behavior, Abnormal/Normal Psychology, Personality, History and Systems in Psychology, and Clinical Neuropsychology. His interest in how human beings use narratives as a primary way of understanding their experience has led him to develop both a senior seminar, Story in Psychology, and to do research in the emerging subfield of narrative psychology. For more than a decade he has also studied how individuals present themselves in online (digital) environments, a research concern which serves as the background for a course on Psychology and Media in the Digital Age. In his spare time, Fr. Hevern is an avid photographer.
