About the Author

Kenneth Goldberg is a clinical psychologist with more than thirty years of professional experience in dealing with many different psychological issues, in both in-patient and out-patient settings. Through his career, he has served children, adolescents, and adults, offering individual and group psychotherapy, as well as marriage and family counseling. Prior to starting his private practice, Dr. Goldberg served as clinical director for a children's residential treatment facility, as director of a psychiatric day-treatment program for the chronically mentally ill, and as the head of a rural mental-health center. He has been a frequent speaker and consultant on programs designed to serve psychiatric populations. His first book, Differing Approaches for Partial Hospitalization, was an edited volume comparing treatment modalities in community-based programs for people who are chronically mentally ill. A member of the American Psychological Association, Dr. Goldberg currently conducts psychological evaluations for disabled workers and for those accused by the state of harming their children. Dr. Goldberg's interest in persistent homework problems was stimulated not just by his personal experience and his work with children, but through studies conducted with disabled adults. Unlike those who work primarily with children, Dr. Goldberg understands the long-term effects that chronic homework problems have on people later in life, as adults and in their roles as parents. Prior to becoming a psychologist, Dr. Goldberg was a mathematician. He attended Columbia University on a National Science Foundation Scholarship and as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow. He left Columbia with a master's degree in math and went on to Long Island University, where he earned a PhD in clinical psychology. Dr. Goldberg brings his mathematical way of thinking to his clinical work, enabling him to see patterns of behavior in unique ways. Dr. Goldberg has dabbled with literary fiction and is the author of Peter Squared.. Dr. Goldberg's next project, after completing his work on The Homework Trap, will be to publish Peter Cubed, the sequel to his first novel. Dr. Goldberg is the proud father of three adult children (all of whom have had different homework experiences) and is married to Maryka Matthews, a retired psychiatric social worker. In his free time, Dr. Goldberg enjoys tennis, chess and Scrabble(TM) (and although he does not feel trapped, he often does work at home).
