Steven Reisner, PhD is a psychoanalyst and political activist in New York. He is a founding member of the Coalition for an Ethical Psychology, Advisor on Psychology and Ethics for Physicians for Human Rights and past-President of Psychologists for Social Responsibility. He was a leader in the successful movement to prohibit psychologists from their central role in abusive CIA and military interrogation and detention processes. As a result of these efforts, psychologists were removed from detention operations at Guantanamo Bay in January 2016.

Dr. Reisner has been on the faculty at the Psychoanalytic Institute of the NYU Medical School and the International Trauma Studies Program at New York University. He has been a consultant on issues of trauma, torture, political violence, disaster and   resilience in the face of catastrophic events for the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, the International Organization for Migrations and other international humanitarian and mental health organizations, and has consulted in Haiti, Kosovo, Kurdistan, Tanzania, and for the French Ministry of Health. Dr. Reisner has published in the New York Times, Slate, and in various academic journals, and is the co-author of two PHR monographs on health professionals and torture. In his earlier career, Dr. Reisner was an Obie-award winning director and actor, whose projects have been performed at the Public Theater, La Mama E.T.C., and Theater for the New City in New York.
