Serdar Guner, M.D. - Psychiatrist and Psychotherapist

I received my M.D. degree from Dicle University Medical Faculty, Diyarbakir, Turkey in 1985 and completed a two-year-mandatory post-graduate state medical officer assignment in Cumhuriyet University Medical Faculty, Emergency Services Department, Sivas, Turkey in 1987.

Following completion of mandatory military service applicable to all male Turkish citizens, I immigrated to Netherlands in 1989 and worked, as a psychiatric assistant, in Polikliniek APZ Groot Graffel [General psychiatric Hospital outpatient services], Zutphen, Polikliniek ABZ Brinkgrevenven [General psychiatric hospital outpatient services], Deventer, PAAZ Deventer Ziekenhuis [General hospital psychiatric services], Deventer, Riagg Almelo [Community mental health center], Deventer, under the supervision of various mentors.

I received my board certification in General Psychiatry after completion of four years residency training program in Amsterdam Vrije University affiliated Valerius Clinic in 1999. My specialty thesis was reflective of young female Turkish immigrants experiencing psycho-social difficulties following marriage and bringing their spouses into Netherlands. This paper was published in MGV periodical.

Those academic and clinical scholars that supervised my training have been including but not limited to W. van Tilburg [Psychoanalysis], Van Balkom [KDT panic therapies] and A. J. Beekman [General psychiatry and expertise in using the Biblical texts in psychiatry]. I gained a vast experience under their mentorship during my studies. I have also developed, in affiliation with Dr. L. Perquin who has been working as a guest faculty in the same clinic since than, a method in detecting signs/symptoms of bipolar as well as schizo-affective patients before they develop actual psychotic breakdown. This method has successfully been applied in the said clinic presently.

It took one year to work in Riagg Doetinchem [Community mental health clinic] following my board certification and started my private practice in 2000.

The summary of those methods I develop, apply and regulate relevant to diagnosis-treatment-prognosis of mental illnesses are documented on a separate sheet.
