Dr. Jack Singer, PhD. Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Sport Psychologist, Marriage, Family & Relationship Therapist, Professional Speaker
Dr. Jack Singer earned his BA in Psychology from UMASS, his MA from Bowling Green State University, a Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology and a post-doctorate in Clinical/Sport Psychology,both from Colorado State University. During his post-doctoral work, Jack was fortunate to study under the tutelage of Dr. Richard Suinn, former President of the American Psychological Association and one of the fathers of modern day Sport Psychology. Dr. Suinn is world renowned for his work with the U.S. Olympic Skiing Teams and his Anxiety Management and Anger Management Training protocols for athletes are used all over the world.
Dr. Jack has taught in the Psychology departments of seven universities, including an assistant professorship at the U.S. Air Force Academy, where he worked with the football team in the area of injury prediction and prevention. Working with professional athletes and teams, college athletes and nationally ranked juniors, Dr. Singer teaches all of his clients how to consistently maximize their performance , regardless of the inevitable obstacles that come their way.
In addition to earning a Diplomate from the American Academy of Behavioral Medicine, Jack maintains a special Certification in Clinical Hypnosis, from the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis. A firm believer in “Mind-Body Medicine,” Jack is one of only a dozen or so Sport Psychologists around the U.S. who has this Clinical Hypnosis Certification and he teaches powerful, self-hypnosis skills to all of his athletes. This is truly the “difference maker” for every athlete who wants to not only maintain her/his peak performance skills consistently, but for every athlete who wants to have an “edge” on their competition…truly the athlete’s “Unfair Advantage”. Of course, since hypnotherapy protocols are also extremely powerful for most medical conditions and diseases, Jack also uses these programs with injured athletes.
Jack has recently been recognized by the National Institute of Sports Professionals, Division of Psychologists, as a Certified Sport Psychologist and NIS also recognized him with a Diplomate in the Field of Sport Psychology. The National Institute of Sports Professionals (NIS) is the oldest credentialing service for professional sports. NIS designates that member professionals adhere to a strict code of ethics and have met the highest standards in their fields to provide professional services to athletes and to sports. Psychologists granted diplomates represent ½ of 1 percent of all psychologists who apply for this designation.
In addition to working directly with athletes, Dr. Jack works with teams to select players, and to develop cohesion and communications skills between coaches and athletes.
Dr. Jack has recently launched a “Core Sports Performance” CD hypnosis series, along with an “Accelerated Sports Healing” and “Advanced Sports Pain Management” CD series. These cutting edge programs really empower the serious athlete to unleash their true potential.
Dr. Jack is a frequent guest on ESPN, FOX-SPORTS, CNN, MSNBC and countless sports radio talk shows throughout the U.S. and Canada, including Reid Spencer’s famous golf show, “On the Green.” In Southern California, Jack was the “go to” regular guest of Lee “Hacksaw” Hamilton on Sports Extra. Lee was recognized as the premier Sports Talk host in the U.S until he retired in 2008. Jack also is on the advisory board for Championship Performance, and his articles are frequently featured in that periodical, as well as sports, human resources, medical and psychological publications around the U.S.
Dr. Jack is also a humorous, motivational professional speaker and for the past 25 years he has been privileged to speak for Fortune 1000 companies and associations from Miami to Malaysia. Jack uses the same skills that motivate athletes to inspire and motivate employees of companies, associations, and large professional practices.
