About the Speaker:
After completing an internship at the Reading Hospital and Medical Center, Dr. Michael Ditsky was licensed as a psychologist in Pennsylvania in 1980. He trained in Family Therapy at the Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute in Philadelphia. He completed a certificate series in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Department of Psychology in 2001. He completed graduate studies at Northcentral, Temple, and West Chester Universities. Besides an M.A. and a Ph.D., Dr. Ditsky obtained an M.Ed. in Adult and Organizational Behavior.
Dr. Ditsky and his wife relocated to Texas in 2008; he was licensed here as a psychologist in 2010. In the same year he received the Creative Therapy award from the University of Texas Medical Branch for his work with incarcerated veterans suffering from PTSD. He worked for the Jester IV psychiatric facility for incarcerated males from 2009 until 2014. In 2013 he began a private practice. His focus is primarily forensic evaluations and consultations and working with patients and families with dementias.
He is a Board-Certified Fellow of the APA approved American College of Forensic Psychology where he has presented at its annual symposia on issues related to the Juvenile Justice System. His interest in dementia began with the evaluation of individuals suffering from a variety of cognitive deficits as a result of TBIs, strokes, cardiac arrests, and progressive brain diseases.
Dr. Ditsky serves as the president of the Texas Psychological Foundation and is a member of the Texas Psychological Association’s convention committee, membership committee, and Grassroots Legislative committee. He is the legislative liaison to the Fort Bend Psychological Association.
