Biographical Notes on Ed Tejirian, Ph.D.

Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, Columbia University. Until 1997, Associate Professor, School of Education, Queens College, City University of New York, where I taught undergraduate and graduate courses in Psychology.

Travel has been an important part of my life. My travels have included: most of Western Europe; Mexico and Central America; North Africa and the Middle East; India and Nepal; Japan. Several of the photographs on the Image of the Body page and in the Slideshow were taken by me in these travels. And observing how men relate to each other in other cultures, particularly in North Africa, India, and the Middle East, has given me a broader understanding of male to male feeling.

I currently live and practice psychotherapy at Riverside Drive on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Also note: If you search for the book on a booksellers’ site, please search under my name (“Edward J. Tejirian,” or simply “Tejirian.”)  If you input “Male to Male” it will be treated as a category instead of a title, and the search will turn up other books. On the other hand, the complete title: “Male to Male: Sexual Feeling Across the Boundaries of Identity” should take you directly to the book.
