Santa Clara County Forensic Psychologist Receives 2017 Distinguished Contribution to Psychology Award For The State of California

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 25, 2017

The California Psychological Association (CPA) selected Dr. Michael Kerner, Ph.D. as the recipient of the 2017 Distinguished Contribution to Psychology award.  This annual award honors a psychologist who has improved the image of psychology by increasing the public’s understanding of the discipline and the profession of psychology in a significant way.  The award was presented to Dr. Kerner at the 2017 CPA Convention at the San Francisco Airport Marriot Waterfront hotel on April 7, 2017.  Upon accepting the award, Dr. Kerner spoke to the crowd of approximately 500 California psychologists on the importance of serving the community.

Dr. Kerner has practiced as a psychologist in Santa Clara County for the past 31 years with a focus on custody evaluations, co-parent counseling, psychotherapy, and expert work for the court.  He serves on the Board of Directors for Palo Alto University and is the Educational Director and lead lecturer for the Association of Advanced Training in the Behavioral Sciences.  In the past, Dr. Kerner has served as an adjunct professor at both Santa Clara University and Palo Alto University. 

Dr. Kerner consults with the San Jose and Salinas police departments, screening officers involved in fatal shootings to assess their fitness for duty.  In his free time, Dr. Kerner volunteers as a sitting member on the Domestic Violence Death Review Team in Santa Clara County, consults with the Crisis Intervention Team with the San Jose Police Department and is on the Peer Support Team of the Morgan Hill Police Department. 

In addition to receiving the 2017 Distinguished Contribution to Psychology Award, Dr. Kerner has previously been awarded the Kantor Medal for Professional Community Service by Palo Alto University (2004), Distinguished Alumni of the Year by Palo Alto University (2013) and Forensic Psychologist of the Year for Santa Clara County by the Santa Clara County Psychological Association (2014).
