He is a Fellow in five APA divisions, and the past-president of two divisions (30 and 32). Formerly, he was director of the Maimonides Medical Center Dream Research Laboratory, in Brooklyn, New York. Krippner is a pioneer in the study of consciousness, having conducted research for over 50 years in the areas of dreams, hypnosis, shamanism, and dissociation, often from a cross-cultural perspective, and with an emphasis on anomalous phenomena that seem to question mainstream paradigms. He is co-editor of The Shamanic Powers of Rolling Thunder (Bear/Inner Traditions, 2016), Working with Dreams and PTSD Nightmares (Praeger, 2016), Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence, 2nd ed.
