About Dr. Langner
Dr. Langner specializes in the psychobiological treatment of anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, and mental health services in St. Charles, IL. He is a Magna Claude/Phi Betta Kappa graduate of the University of Minnesota. He received his medical education at UM and the University of Vienna. In Vienna, he was deeply influenced by his work with psychiatrist Viktor Frankl, founder of "Existential Analysis," and his message of the profound importance of meaning in life, which was responsible for his survival in the Nazi death camps. Dr. Langner was also profoundly influenced by his analyst, psychoanalyst Heinz Kohut, founder of "Self Psychology."
Dr. Langner is a graduate of the Menninger School of Psychiatry, ranked by US News and World Report as one of the five best psychiatric residency programs in the US. He is a board-certified psychiatrist in neurology and psychiatry, placing in the top 10%.
Dr. Langner served in the military with the marines in Vietnam. Out of this experience, he wrote an article called "The Making of a Murder," published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, which looks at American failed foreign policy in Vietnam. He is the author of the book "Attachment and Suicide," which investigates the relationship between suicide and attachment disturbances through an analysis of suicide notes. While in the military, the board-certified psychiatrist met his wife, who was serving with the American Red Cross. They have been together for over 40 years.
He is not only an expert in anxiety treatment; Dr. Langner has served as chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at Provena Mercy Center in Aurora, IL. He has extensive forensic experience through his work with juvenile and adult offenders.
Dr. Langner is proficient in the use of psychotropic medication but believes these medications must be used in the context of a deep understanding of the patient, especially if it is to be used on mental health services. Dr. Langner's philosophy is aligned with that of Socrates, who, in ancient Greece, long before Freud and psychoanalysis, said: "Know thyself. The unexamined life is not worth living."
