Corey Leidenfrost— I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. Over 13 years in the mental health fields I have gained experience in a diverse range of areas, including serving as the director of a domestic violence service program, running a domestic violence offenders program in two counties, and conducting mental health therapy with children, adolescents, and adults, in several modalities, including groups, individual, couples, and family. Through my work with Child & Family Services in Erie County I completed risk assessments and evaluations with adolescents and adult sex offenders, along with facilitating sex offender management groups. My past and current positions have provided me with the opportunity to work with community partners, building relationships and maintaining efforts to address domestic and sexual violence in the community. Through a position with the board of the NYS Alliance I hope to continue these efforts, not only in my own community, but state-wide. My experiences in training and education, including teaching at the university level, have helped build my communication skills, facilitating my ability to educate and work in partnerships with others. At my current position with University Psychiatric Practice through University at Buffalo I remain involved in the forensic field, conducting court-ordered competency evaluations, providing oversight to a psychiatric treatment unit in the Erie County Holding Center, and supervising/mentoring students. In the future I will help run a new psychiatric unit at the Erie County Medical Center. Overall, drawing upon my experience in working with violence both with victims and offenders, I hope to become a productive member of the NYS Alliance board, working to improve treatment efforts with sexual offenders and address sexual violence across the state.
