OTHER PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE

Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago:
Initially employed as a Staff Psychologist in 1981, I became Senior Psychologist at RIC, a facility for rehabilitation of physically disabled individuals. The institute is dedicated to the most severe cases. I worked both on the adult and pediatric services. My duties included provision of clinical services, including neuropsychological evaluations and psychotherapy, to patients as well as consultation with treatment team members. I was Director of the Neuropsychological Testing Service where I supervised the work of four psychometricians. In that service, we saw approximately 1,000 patients a year. I directed the psychology services for the Spinal Injury Service, the Brain Injury Service, and a General Rehabilitation Service, where I delivered psychology services myself and also supervised the work of other psychologists and post-doctoral fellows.
