Mark S. Carlson has worked in community mental health for over thirty years as a psychotherapist and consultant. Prior to joining the Argosy faculty in 2008, Carlson worked at Human Services, Inc. in Oakdale, Minnesota, where he supervised their Adult Day Treatment, Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services, and Supported Employment programs. He also was part of HSI's pre-doctoral internship training program and helped forge a community-county partnership to establish the county's first drop-in social center for SPMI adults. Carlson has worked with a wide range of clients over the years, primarily utilizing humanistic and cognitive behavioral approaches. He has a special interest in couples issues and co-occurring mental health and chemical health problems. In the last several years, Carlson has presented widely, conducting day-long trainings on clinical supervision and supported employment. He also has a strong interest in the history of psychology and works to incorporate the voices and experiences of non-dominant groups into that historical narrative. Outside of psychology, Carlson co-wrote Coming Out, Coming Home, a play which explores the interface of sexuality and spirituality, which has been performed in nearly a dozen states.
