Associate Psychologist, Healthy Brain Network

Child Mind Institute

Maureen Mintzer, PhD, NCSP, is an associate psychologist for the Healthy Brain Network and a Nationally Certified School Psychologist. She received her doctorate in school psychology from APA- and NASP-accredited Temple University with a dual training emphasis on comprehensive psychoeducational assessment and evidence-based academic and behavioral intervention practices in schools. Dr. Mintzer’s dissertation drew upon biophysiological markers to measure the validity of a self-report empathy scale and to assess its clinical usefulness for informing data-driven socioemotional support programs in the school setting.

Dr. Mintzer completed her pre-doctoral internship and post-doctoral training at CORA Services, a not-for-profit agency in Philadelphia that serves children and families experiencing socioemotional or academic challenges in their schools and communities. In her role there, she completed comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations to create a roadmap for parents and educators by identifying educational classifications, setting achievable goals and designing practical interventions for school-age youth. In addition to her clinical training in comprehensive assessment and intervention for children with a broad range of needs — including neurodevelopmental disorders, rare genetic conditions, and trauma and stress related disorders — Dr. Mintzer has extensive training in and experience with empirically supported crisis prevention and response, group therapy practices and positive behavioral supports at the individual and community level.
