    MONTROSE, NY, August 22, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to present Alan R. Wachtel, PhD, with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. Wachtel celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Dr. Wachtel is a clinical psychologist with more than 50 years of service to his field. He became interested in the field while in college and followed in his older brother's footsteps in the pursuit of a career in clinical psychology. He attended Adelphi University, graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in 1966 before proceeding to earn a Master of Science degree in Clinical Psychology from Long Island University in 1968. Dr. Wachtel went on for his doctorate in the field at the University of Montana and received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 1973. He chose that Program because of its focus on multiple theoretical positions instead of a single theoretical focus found at other Universities. This led to his prescriptive approach to psychotherapy.

From 1969 until 1972, Dr. Wachtel found success as a teaching assistant in Psychology at the University of Montana. He completed an internship in Clinical Psychology at New York University Medical Center between 1972 and 1973, and served as a behavioral specialist at Occupations, Inc., of Middletown, NY in 1973. In 1974, Dr. Wachtel joined the Departments of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Montrose, NY and began on an Alcohol Dependence Unit. He went on to work on a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), helped develop a MICA program there (for co-occurring disorders) and later worked with the same population with outpatients. He served as a senior member of the Psychiatric Emergency Code Team at that facility for more than 30 years where he was a first responder for patients who were potentially violent toward others or suicidal. He retired from the Department of Veterans Affairs in 2017. Dr. Wachtel has engaged in his own part-time private practice as a clinical psychologist since 1978.

Dr. Wachtel received an honorable mention GEICO Public Service Award in 1984 for his work in alcoholism treatment. He is a licensed psychologist in the state of New York, and is proud to have been able to evaluate and refer for help some of the 9/11 first responders. Dr. Wachtel is a member of both the New York State Psychological Association and the American Psychological Association.

In recognition of outstanding contributions to his profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Alan Wachtel, PhD, has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit for more information about this honor.
