Dr. Tamar Z. Kahane has been in private practice for over twenty years, providing excellent psychological care through her specialized, unique approach to mental health. She served as the Senior Psychologist in the Solomon Schechter School of Bergen County for seven years. She trained at the Kennedy Center at Albert Einstein Hospital and at St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital, receiving her Doctorate of Psychology from Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and her Bachelor of Arts from Barnard College, Columbia University. During her time at Einstein, Dr. Kahane received a grant to study the socio-emotional aspect of a learning disability from a neurological perspective, from which stemmed her subspecialty in Social Cognition Therapy. As a pioneer in this field, she introduced social skills training to her practice twenty years ago and continues to run multiple groups at The Center. Dr. Kahane is the founder of POWER, an original executive functioning curriculum that empowers children to become the best CEOs of themselves. POWER, which piloted at Lehman College this summer, has already helped hundreds of children, and continues to expand into schools across the country. Dr. Kahane lectures nationally, provides supervision to psychologists and professionals both in and out of her practice, conducts teacher trainings in private and public schools, and consults with many schools in the Metropolitan area. Under the supervision of Dr. Beatrice Beebe, PhD, she founded the "Bonding with Baby" program at the Kahane Center. Dr. Kahane also serves on the Stigma Free Task Force for the City of Engelwood's Department of Health.
