Ronald S. Kaiser, Ph.D., ABPP, is a Licensed Psychologist in Philadelphia, where he is in private practice and also serves as consulting psychologist to the Jefferson Headache Center at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. In addition to serving on staff at both Jefferson and Methodist Hospitals, Dr. Kaiser is Clinical Associate Professor in the Department of Neurology at Jefferson Medical College.
He is listed in the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology and Board Certified in Forensic Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology. He has a special interest in behavioral medicine and in working with medical patients to improve their emotional functioning. He also started a psychology practicum and internship training site at Jefferson, and he continues to be heavily involved in the training of doctoral level psychologists of the future.
During his half century of helping others, Dr. Kaiser has evolved an approach to working with patients that emphasizes their abilities to take charge of their lives and build emotional strength to overcome obstacles and improve general mental health. He has presented some of his ideas at workshops and conferences in various cities in the U.S. as well as Cancun, Stockholm, and Istanbul. His e-books, “WHAT CAN GO RIGHT? The Thinking Person’s Guide to Making Good Things Happen,” and “THE MENTAL HEALTH GYM PLAYBOOK” present his approach to improving mental health by being proactive and positive. The Mental Health Gym was founded so that the internet could be utilized to reach and help more people. Dr Kaiser emphasizes the importance of maintaining a high level of physical health in his personal life, and he actively works out at a gym and also does yoga as part of a healthy lifestyle. He believes that the benefits of working out with others and gaining from them is transferable to the mental fitness arena, and he brings that philosophy to his own participation at The Mental Health Gym.
