Bio

Dr. Kibrick is a clinical psychologist who established the Chronic Pain Management Program for Kaiser-Permanente at their Woodland Hills Medical Center. He is also a past-president of the Los Angeles County Psychological Association, and was vice-president of the California Association of Psychology Providers. He is a Board Certified Fellow of the American College of Advanced Practice Psychologists, a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management, a Senior Fellow of the Biofeedback Certification Institute of America, and is listed in the National Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology. Over the past 40 years, he has treated thousands of patients with pain-related disorders. His approach is based on cognitive-behavioral techniques including relaxation training, biofeedback, guided imagery, and self-hypnosis. Dr. Kibrick also founded and directed the Stress Management Service in the Department of Psychiatry/ Behavioral Medicine at the Kaiser-Permanente Medical Center in Los Angeles from 1977 to 1986. There he developed treatment protocols for cancer patients (to reduce nausea associated with chemotherapy and radiation treatment, manage pain, and reduce insomnia); burn patients (to control pain and increase treatment compliance); and general medical patients with a variety of psychosomatic complaints (asthma, ulcer, spastic colon, tension headache, migraine headache, TMJ syndrome, hypertension, and Raynaud's syndrome). He has authored several professional publications, including a chapter entitled "Biofeedback in the Treatment of Chronic Back Pain" (with C. Belar, Ph.D.) in Pain Management: A Handbook of Psychological Treatment Approaches, edited by A.D. Holzman, Ph.D. of Yale University Medical School, and D.C. Turk, Ph.D., of University of Pittsburgh Medical School, Permagon Press (New York), 1986. He has presented many workshops for other healthcare professionals, including physicians, dentists, nurses, social workers, and psychologists
