About Me

Dr. Scott Krakower, Asst Professor, Author, Speaker, Founder

Dr. Krakower maintains a private faculty practice in New York for youth and adults from around the country.  He has devoted his teaching career to understanding mental health in children and adults and studied early attachment to better understand progression of normative development in infants, children, and adolescents.  Dr. Krakower also learned how maladaptive mechanisms, in conjunction with neurobiologic underpinnings can alter the trajectory of development and emotional regulation.  Through additional medical training in addiction psychiatry and behavioral theory, clinical training in Tourette Syndrome and movement disorders,  and former directorship at the Mineola / Garden City community treatment center, he learned how to identify at-risk youth, adults, and veterans and how to combat progression to substance abuse disorders and post-traumatic stress disorder.  

Dr. Krakower is currently the assistant unit chief for Zucker Hillside Hospital and has published in journals for pharmacology and psychotherapy, including Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinics of North America.  He writes blogs,  conducts peer review, and provides expert opinion on topics impacting world health and the younger generation.  He participates in parenting groups and leads discussions for physicians, social workers, nurses, nurse practitioners, teachers, students, and unions.  He is an international keynote speaker for symposiums and organizations.  He has been cited as a top physician in psychiatry, child and adolescent psychiatry, trauma, and addiction disorders and is a distinguished fellow in the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.   He provides expert opinion and testimony for cases and studies around the world.
