Arthur Pammenter Ph.D.
Dr. Art received his Ph.D. from Temple University in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. He soon traveled to San Diego where he has been in practice since 1982. Along with his practice he worked at Solar Turbines, Inc. as the Director of Employee Assistance until 1984. He has continued to provide EAP, clinical and consulting services ever since.

In the early '90s he trained with the John Bradshaw Center in Inner Child work. He and his two colleagues formed the nucleus of the San Diego Chapter of the John Bradshaw Center where many hundreds of clients received counseling in the Bradshaw method. Art continues providing inner child counseling to clients utilizing this unique and impactful approach.

The true test of an individual is when they form a meaningful relationship. All the old family issues, sensitivities, and insecurities immediately come out. To improve the resolution of these issues Art has received training from John Grey (Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus) in relationship counseling. He has studied at The Center For Cognitive Therapy in Long Beach, learning to teach clients how their self talk affects their moods. And, as mentioned elsewhere, he has studied with the Hardiness Institute learning and teaching Hardiness principles.

For ten years Art was a stress management consultant at Scripps Hospital's Center For Executive Health. There he learned the Mind-Body relationship is critical to managing health and happiness. The role that stress plays in Wellness was clear, those that managed their stress lived longer, happier and more fulfilling lives.

In addition to private practice Art serves as a consultant to a number of organizations. He provides psychological feedback to clients in the outplacement program at Drake Beam Morin, and delivers critical incident stress de-briefings to Value/Options and other employee assistance programs.
