Dr. Kinzel held a variety of positions throughout his illustrious career, including serving the U.S. Public Health Service at the U.S. Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield, Mo. where he diagnosed and treated the most dangerous mentally ill prisoners.

He also wrote multiple articles on violent behavior and recently finished writing, “Person Theory: Toward a New Developmental Paradigm for the Origin, Nature, and Disorder of the Mind” (International Psychoanalytic Books). The book, which was co-written by Dr. Ahron L. Friedberg, explores a theory of normal unconscious multi-track personal development, of psychodynamic disorders of unconscious destructive intent of the personal track formative phases, of the evolution of personal track phases collectively causing civilization eras, and of matter wave evolution in which unconsciousness and consciousness mind matter waves are the most recent to develop.
Dr. Kinzel is a highly accomplished and decorated doctor who earned the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award for improvement in those with treatment resistant schizophrenia from the National Alliance on Mental Illness in 1993. He attributes his success to his ability to accurately diagnose and treat patients effectively and rapidly, and at the same time to see patterns in them that led him to formulate new concepts of normal personal development phases and their psychodynamic disorders.
