    KRASNER PSYCHOLOGICAL CENTERProvides psychological services to adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families in the community. KPC is a nonprofit community mental health facility operated by the Department of Psychology at the University at Stony Brook. Serving the campus and surrounding communities since 1972, the KPC is an integral part of the Clinical Psychology Training Program at Stony Brook. It serves the dual purpose of providing high quality psychotherapy and psychological testing services to the community while giving advanced graduate students in clinical psychology the opportunity to gain professional experience under the close supervision of Stony Brook’s clinical faculty. Because Stony Brook’s clinical program is also committed to the science of clinical psychology, the KPC is also a research facility where studies are conducted to identify the causes and effective treatments for a variety of psychological disorders. Our treatment approach is based on the latest research-supported cognitive and behavioral intervention programs for psychological and behavioral disorders. In particular, the KPC offers treatment for depression, anxiety, eating disorders, sexual dysfunctions, marital distress, parenting, and a variety of other emotional and behavioral difficulties in children, adolescents and adults. Therapy modalities include individual, marital, family, and group therapies. Therapy and psychoeducational groups are formed from time to time and focus on a particular group of people or a problem. For example, group programs are periodically conducted for problems of depression, agoraphobia, eating disorders, social skills training and parent training. Also offered are psychotherapy groups for individuals undergoing bariatric surgery. The KPC also has an ongoing psychoeducational testing program for the assessment of learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, mental retardation and other forms of psychopathology. In addition, individual intelligence and personality tests are administered as well as evaluations for bariatric surgery candidates. Verbal and written testing reports and recommendations are provided. Within the KPC is the Anxiety Disorders Clinic, a specialty treatment center. The Anxiety Disorders Clinic offers assessments and treatment for children and adults suffering from problems of anxiety. The specialized treatments target obsessive-compulsive disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias- both specific and social, panic disorders and generalized anxiety disorders. A person wishing to make an appointment at the KPC should telephone (631) 632-7830. Referrals from schools, private physicians, and community agencies are welcomed. Because the KPC does not have a 24 hour emergency service, we cannot accept psychiatric emergencies including suicidal crisis, drug or alcohol overdose, or acute psychotic episode. In such cases, we recommend that you call the Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP) at the University Hospital (631) 444-6050. The KPC has a sliding scale fee schedule for therapy. Requests for fee reductions for unusual circumstances, such as extreme financial hardship, are reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the Director. Fees for participation in our group therapy programs vary according to the type of group program offered. Our psychological assessment program is also on a sliding fee scale basis including psychoeducational testing and IQ testing. The KPC does not participate in any insurance program or Medicare.
