Kathryn Procknal, LMSW
Western Division Chair (2019-2021)

Over the past five years I’ve practiced various aspects of professional social work in Buffalo, N.Y. and Philadelphia, PA. I’ve taken on roles in crisis prevention and intervention at Crisis Services of Buffalo and NYSTART, which provides assistance to individuals and families with intellectual/developmental disabilities and mental health diagnoses. I have experience in both micro- and macro- social work as a dialectical behavioral therapist in a residential treatment facility, a residential treatment facilities specialist through the N.Y.
