Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.

Miscellaneous Information

Dr. Stanley Krippner earned a B.S. from the University of Wisconsin and an M.A. and Ph.D. from Northwestern University. While a student at Northwestern he invited JB Rhine to address the annual banquet of Phi Delta Kappa (honorary educational society), JB accepted, and thus began a lifelong friendship between the two.. Dr. Krippner served for several years as Director of the Child Study Center at Kent State University, but it was his subsequent work supervising psi dream research at Maimonides Medical Center that brought Dr. Krippner much acclaim in the parapsychological world and contributed to his being awarded the PA's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1998. In 1973 Dr. Krippner joined the faculty of Saybrook Graduate School, holds faculty positions in Brazil and Mexico, and has lectured and published extensively on personal mythology, dreams, hypnosis, and/or anomalous phenomena in many countries around the world. He is the recipient of many awards, probably the most prestigious being the APA Award for Outstanding Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology, 2002.

"The Rhine Research Center continues the historic legacy left them by J.B. and L.E. Rhine, those great pioneers in the study of human consciousness. The programs at "The Rhine" go beyond parapsychology research; they demonstrate how these phenomena interact with other human experiences and activities." --Stanley Krippner, Ph.D.
