Barbara Kaufman has been conducting presentations and workshops on various mental health topics throughout her career. Most recently she presented a combined comedy/workshop format at “The Washington Society for Jungian Psychology” and “The New York C.G. Jung Foundation.”
Dr. Kaufman has over 35 years of clinical experience, including: college counseling centers, university psychology departments, health maintenance organizations, Veterans Administration Hospital, Community Mental Health Center and private practice.
Barbara began to be noticed for her humor at conferences and educational meetings for mental health professionals.
A member of the baby boomer generation, she began dressing up as characters from the original “Saturday Night Live” television program and performing at birthday parties and other events, which led to gigs at stand-up comedy clubs. Her current work combines stand-up and expertise from her career as a psychologist.
