Dr. Nina Silander is a rehabilitation psychologist in Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital – University Campus and Behavioral Medicine. She graduated with her doctoral degree in clinical psychology from Regent University. Dr. Silander completed her internship at the Syracuse VA Medical Center where she trained in multiple evidence-based psychotherapy approaches, was certified in Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma/PTSD, and provided psychological assessment and intervention services in primary care and general outpatient mental health clinics.
Dr. Silander completed her clinical health psychology postdoctoral residency in the trauma surgery department at UF Health-Jacksonville, a level 1 trauma center. At Brooks, she provides inpatient and outpatient psychotherapy, conducts pre-surgical evaluations, and consults with a neighboring hospital’s trauma service. Dr. Silander became increasingly concerned about ideological bias in psychology during her doctoral internship. Since, she allocates time to connect this research base to clinical practice and trace the major threat it presents to the APA through publications and engagement in media.
