He was trained to understand how the family ecosystem operates, in that one part of the system affects the sum; simply put, the patient is the family, and the family is the patient. He furthered his training in Structural Family Therapy under the tutelage of the late Salvador Minuchin, founder of Structural Therapy. Prior to his work as a family therapist at Caron, Dr. Gordon worked as a clinical director, community-based outpatient therapist, and held a private practice.
Dr. Gordon also specializes in the effects of internal and external influences on professional athletes. His dissertation explored the career cycle of professional athletes and their families and the difficulties in adjusting to retirement.
