For over 20 years, Dr. Don Kerson has practiced psychiatry at Greenpoint Psychiatric Services, the mental health clinic he founded in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, in 1986. He is a specialist in the treatment of adults with attention deficit disorder, depression and trauma. The ideas Dr. Kerson presents in his soon-to-be published book, Getting Unstuck: Unraveling the Knot of Depression, Attention, and Trauma, developed from his observations and experiences with patients who came to his Greenpoint clinic for help.
As an undergraduate student, Dr. Kerson earned an Honors degree in Psychology and Biochemistry from Brown University. He earned his M. D. from the University of Vermont and completed his psychiatric specialty training at the New York University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry. In addition to psychiatry, Dr. Kerson's professional medical experience includes three years as a general practitioner and emergency room physician.
