Dr. Arnon Rolnick is a clinical psychologist with a special interest in the integration of technology and psychology.
Rolnick gained his PhD in psychology from Tel Aviv University and did his postdoctoral research at Brandeis University in Massachusetts . A recipient of the Rothschild and the Lewis fellowships, he served as a visiting scientist in several motion sickness research centers in the USA, Britain and the Netherlands.
Based on his 20 years’ career as a psychologist in the Israeli Navy, Rolnick developed methods for stress management. He uses motion sickness and seasickness in particular as a model for general research in medical psychology.
In 1991, Rolnick established the Israeli Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback and served on the board of the American Association for Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback.
His therapeutic approach is integrative: on the one hand, Rolnick is a graduate of the three year advanced psychotherapeutic program of the Israeli Psychoanalytic Institute in Jerusalem, and on the other hand he is a certified CBT supervisor.
Dr. Rolnick founded and owns a clinic employing a dozen therapists who integrate various psychological orientations. In this role he supervises many therapists using online methods.
In parallel, Rolnick is engaged in consulting work for British and Israeli startups, helping them develop psychophysiological programs, software and apps as well cognitive behavioral interventions.
Dr. Rolnick’s academic writing during his work at the Ben Gurion University and Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center is focused on the integration of psychotherapy, biofeedback with interpersonal neurobiology.
Rolnick recently co-edited the book (with Haim Weinberg) “The Theory and Practice of Online-Therapy” (Routledge Publications) where he suggests that virtual therapy opens a unique way to study the role of the body and the brain in therapy.
Arnon is the proud father of two children: His son works on integrating AI, linguistics and software at Google, and his daughter is a Clinical Psychologist at the Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center.
