Clinical Social Worker
Irving Schattner

Credentials: License

Institution: Florida Board of Clinical Social Workers

Institution: Florida International University

Graduated: 1996

In practice since: 1996

I am a licensed clinical social worker / psychotherapist with over 25 years of experience helping individuals, couples and families overcome real-life challenges. I've worked in diverse clinical settings including assisted living and skilled nursing / rehabilitation, community mental health, addictions, psychiatric care and, more recent, in private practice. It is through these experiences that I've developed a strong appreciation of the uniqueness of each person's life story, as well as the belief that given the right support and conditions people can overcome most challenges and even thrive. Recognizing that no two clients are alike, my treatment approach is evidence-based and individually tailored to best meet client needs. My areas of specialization include anxiety disorders and depression, addictions, relationships, and trauma. I work with teens, adults and seniors with a caring, solution-focused approach.

I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers {NASW}, and Anxiety and Depression Association of America {ADAA}.

The body is a magnificent creation. It lets us know when we're feeling well, and when things are off kilter. If we take good care of it, most likely it will take good care of us. If we abuse or ignore what it is telling us, we fail to recognize the message(s) it is trying to convey. Imagine, for a moment, our bellies telling us that it's time to eat or perhaps that we ate a bit too much. Imagine working..

It seems that worry has become a normal state of affairs for many, if not most, people. One only needs to turn on the television to witness conflict, aggression, lack of civil discourse, violence, death, and destruction. Repeated exposure leaves some people feeling numb and desensitized, while others feel stressed out, panicked and in a state of perpetual vigilance and fear. Besides what one witness..

Exploring the Inner Self
Exploring the Inner Self

What does the expression "out with the old, in with the new" mean? Does it mean that we discard the past and plan for a new tomorrow? Do we ignore all that has come before in favor of that which is yet »

What does the expression "out with the old, in with the new" mean? Does it mean that we discard the past and plan for a new tomorrow? Do we ignore all that has come before in favor of that which is yet to come? In pondering these questions, I can identify with my own experiences that have shaped the person I was and have come to be. Are they one and the same? One might argue, that I am still the same..
