Skip Dine Young, Ph.D. is a Professor of Psychology at Hanover College in Indiana and a licensed clinical psychologist. He received his Ph.D. from Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts. His areas of interest are in human development, psychological assessment, symbolism, narrative and identity. Since his senior thesis at Miami University (Ohio), Skip has been combining his personal passion for popular cultural (particularly movies and music) with his scholarship. He believes that movies can be "equipment for living"—they can take on personal meanings for viewers that impact our everyday lives (hopefully for the better).
