After receiving his Ph.D. in psychology from Stanford University in 1974, Gay began teaching at the University of Colorado. He spent 21 years at the University of Colorado and became a Full Professor in the Counseling Psychology Department while founding The Hendricks Institute.

Source Notes

From Tony Howard by email in March 2020: "I just came across the birth time for Gay Hendricks through a post on his FB page made by him" [1] [2]:

'Gay Hendricks January 20 [2020]· My day began when I popped awake at 4:30, the same time I was born 75 years ago today! (Thanks, Mom!) Then, after I made myself a cup of coffee, I sat down to look at my email. The first one was from our dear friend, Oxana Holtmann, who recorded, in English and Russian, my favorite poem by Anna Akhmatova. Anna wrote it after the death of her friend and lover, Boris Pasternak. Oxana's version brought tears to my eyes.'
