About Dr. Ramm

 
Dr. Douglas Ramm Douglas R. Ramm, Ph.D. is a Board Certified Clinical Psychologist who studied philosophy and religion at Ithaca College and Psychology at Cornell and Duquesne Universities. He is a member of the American Psychological and American Philosophical Associations as well as the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development. His 30 years of clinical work and pioneering research on the relationship between happiness and human behavior has attracted worldwide interest since it was introduced to the scientific community in New Ideas in Psychology: An International Journal of Innovation Theory in Psychology in 1996.  

 
In order to share his discoveries with adolescents and young adults, Dr. Ramm developed The Facts of Life Seminar in 2002. To date, the program has been implemented as a mandated intervention for all youth going through the juvenile probation program in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. More recently, Dr. Ramm has been hired by the Pennsylvania Center for Juvenile Justice Training and Research to educate probation officers and other youth workers from around the state on how to conduct The Facts of Life Seminar in their own settings. So far, students who have completed The Facts of Life Seminar have generated outcome statistics indicating that it has had a significant impact on their approach to daily living.
 
Since 1996, Dr. Ramm has published several articles about his discoveries in a number of scientific and professional journals. In 2004, he published The Formula for Happiness, a self-help book which shows readers how to make use of his discoveries in the course of daily living. Following publication of The Formula for Happiness, Dr. Ramm has appeared on a number of television and radio talk shows. He has also addressed several professional organizations where he shared his discoveries about how to embrace real and lasting happiness with psychologists, social workers, and other human service professionals.
 
Dr. Ramm was trained in child and adolescent psychology at South Hills Child Guidance Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He served as director of child and adolescent psychiatric services at Westmoreland Hospital, a Greensburg, Pennsylvania institution which has recently been identified as one of the nation's top 100 hospitals. Since leaving that organization in order to establish and maintain his own psychological service in 1983, Dr. Ramm has continued to be a regular consultant to the Westmoreland County Juvenile Court and the Westmoreland County Child Welfare Agency. He currently owns and operates a psychological service which provides forensic and psychotherapeutic services to children, adolescents and adults.
 
Dr. Ramm has lectured on psychology at Duquesne University, the University of Pittsburgh, and Saint Vincent College. Through the Pennsylvania Psychological Association he trained a number of other psychologists to use the concepts contained in The Facts of Life programs in a variety of mental health settings. He also trained a number of juvenile justice personnel and corrections officers by conducting workshops through the Pennsylvania Juvenile Court Judges' Conference and the Pennsylvania Association of Parole, Probation and Corrections Officers. He is the past president of the local chapter of the National Mental Health Association in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania where he resides with his family and has practiced his profession for more than thirty years.
