DR. LEON GERSTEN INSTITUTE FOR LEARNING & GROWTH
At IDCC, we want our employees to feel they’re a part of something bigger than just a job. Our employees want to change lives in a positive way.
That’s why IDCC invests in their dreams, helping each and every one enhance their professional skills and continue their education in the field of mental health.
As a young child, Dr. Gersten experienced the dark side of humanity when he went through the horrors of World War II and the Holocaust. Yet he also saw the very best of humanity, as kind neighbors risked their lives to save him and his family from Nazis.
Inspired by the actions of his courageous neighbors, Dr. Gersten dedicated his life to helping others in need by starting the Interborough Developmental and Consultation Center (IDCC) non-profit facility as a way to give back to the community.
Joining the IDCC team means you will have access to unparalleled opportunities through the Dr. Leon Gersten Institute for Learning & Growth. The Institute will help you so that you can bring out the very best in those you work with, while also bringing out the very best in yourself as well.
No matter how you choose to cultivate your learning and further your career, we have the courses, programs, and workshops to help you attain your goal of becoming a skilled and talented psychotherapist.
