Dr. Steven Knoblauch is an internationally recognized clinician, teacher, and lecturer on psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. He has taught and presented at conferences and workshops in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East,   In addition to maintaining a private practice in New York City, he serves as faculty and clinical consultant at The New York University Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. He also serves as faculty and supervisor for several additional training programs, both in New York City and elsewhere.

Dr. Knoblauch is often sought out as consultant, supervisor or trainer, for his particular expertise in attention to the subtle micro-dimensions of human interaction. This emphasis is described in great detail in his text The Musical Edge of Therapeutic Dialogue published in 2000 and available through Taylor and Francis. The book contains many clinical illustrations demonstrating the impact of embodied rhythm and tonality on the emotional meanings emerging in various forms of human encounter.  His newest book, Bodies and Social Rhythms, continues to develop his emphasis on embodied registrations augmented by considerations for the social contextual meanings, particularly concerning race, class and gender, that can shape human experience consciously and unconsciously.

Dr. Knoblauch began his work with individuals and groups as an undergraduate volunteer with the Community Involvement Council of the University of Pennsylvania in the late 1960s working with potential gang members involving them in alternative creative and recreational activities. He also served as a student representative on a committee to support the development of the first Black Studies Program at the University of Pennsylvania. In 1970 he moved to New York City pursuing a dual career as a jazz musician and working for the Roosevelt Hospital Community Mental Health Service in welfare hotels on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. During this period he also worked in group home and treatment program settings. While finishing his graduate studies, Dr. Knoblauch coordinated the psychological services at The Door, a multi-service treatment model program from 1975 through 1981. From 1981 through 1988 he headed up a unit that provided training and consultative services to organizations throughout the 5 continents interested in replicating the program and service delivery strategies for adolescents that The Door represented as a project of the United Nations NGO, The International Center for Integrative Studies. Following the attack of 9/11 in New York City, he was recruited to serve as clinical liaison and consultant from the NYU Postdoctoral Program with Feel The Music, a program of music and arts workshops offered for surviving family members to facilitate recovery and resilience. In addition to his professional activities in treatment, education, and training, Dr. Knoblauch continues to play jazz saxophone and study Brazilian percussion traditions integrating these experiences into his teaching and practice.
