Bruce G. Seidner, PhD
Dr. Seidner earned his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville in 1987. Prior to entering U.T. he worked and studied at the Menninger Foundation, a psychiatric residential hospital with a long tradition of psychoanalytic treatment.
Dr. Seidner maintains a psychotherapy practice in the treatment of adults, adolescents, and children. His experience in addictions treatment and evaluations for professional boards allows him to work effectively with recovering professionals and often their children, who are beginning to demonstrate substance abuse, conduct, and academic problems. His services as a special master or parenting coordinator significantly reduces turmoil, increases compliance, and finds solutions for divorced families that are in the children’s best interests. For 18 years he served as an adjunct clinical professor in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Tennessee. He has been president of the Appalachian Psychoanalytic Association and the Tennessee Valley Mediation Association.
While his core perspective of therapy is developmental and psychodynamic, he has trained in short term, solution focused treatments, DBT and ACT. He is trained in contemporary Mindfulness based therapy and has studied traditional meditation practices for extended periods in Asia.
