About Vincent Corcoran

Vincent Corcoran, Ph.D. is an assistant professor of counseling and community psychology in the School of Health Sciences at Russell Sage College. He has expertise in delivering evidence-based psychological care, specifically interventions informed by cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). While not teaching or engaged in research, Dr. Corcoran continues to treat individuals through the Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy & Research (ICBTR).

Dr. Corcoran’s research centers around suicide and non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI). He is particularly interested in exploring how online behaviors might influence the onset, maintenance, and cessation of NSSI and whether online social connectedness can protect against suicidal behavior. He has also begun to explore suicidality within mental health professionals by focusing on variables such as burnout and perfectionism.

Prior to joining Russell Sage College, Dr. Corcoran completed his predoctoral psychology internship at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine, where he spent the year providing psychological treatment to a diverse Bronx population within both outpatient and inpatient settings. He also completed clinical training experiences at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medicine, Westchester Jewish Community Services (WJCS), and Cognitive Behavioral Consultants (CBC).

Outside of academia you can find Dr. Corcoran hiking, fishing, trying to find the spiciest food to eat, and occasionally playing games on the Nintendo Switch. Dr. Corcoran has a passion for mentorship and helping students find their path into the mental health field.

He completed his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Fordham University. He also received his B.S. in Psychology, with a minor in Biological Sciences, from Fordham University.
