About Dr. Jeffrey Bolek

I specialize in rehabilitation psychology. A rehabilitation psychologist helps a person recover from some trauma. Trauma can take many forms. It can be an accident, a life event, an assault by another person or an illness. It can also be the chronic stress of a difficult job experience or troubled marriage. It doesn’t matter how others view it; it only how matters how YOU experience it. I have been doing this work for over 38 years with 26 years as Director of Psychology and Head, Motor Control Program at the Cleveland Clinic Children’s Hospital for Rehabilitation. There is a link on this site with information about a program I created, motor control restoration, that helps a person recover movement lost due to an injury or medical condition. I use my training and experience to develop, along with your help, the best plan to help you recover from the trauma you have suffered.

I have written over 17 peer reviewed publications in professional journals and have given numerous presentations at professional conferences. I am the former president of the largest organization of specialists in psychophysiology—the Association of Applied Psychophysiology & Biofeedback (AAPB).   I am board certified by the Biofeedback Certification Institute Alliance, the primary certification body for those practicing psychophysiology. I received the Sheila Adler Award from the AAPB in 2015 for outstanding contributions to the field of psychophysiology. I also received the Innovation Award from the Cleveland Clinic in 2004 for the Bolek Gait Modification Program.  I have helped hundreds of patients over the last 30 years with over 13,000 one-hour treatment sessions.
