Two Analysts Speak from New York On How They Help Families in Harlem
Mr Michael Connolly is the President and Executive Director of The Harlem Family Institute in New York City. Founded in 1991, the Institute provides free therapy for youngsters and families in need by offering free, long-term psychotherapy in neighbourhood schools and community centres in New York City. Mr Connolly previously had links with Cairnmillar prior to leaving to work and live in New York, where he underwent further psychoanalytic training. His work and experience span the fields of international-affairs media and psychodynamic therapy with children and families.
Joining Mr Connolly, is Dr Kim Arrington the Clinical Director at the Institute. Dr Arrington has a strong foundation in helping many families struggling with substance abuse. In the internship year of her doctoral
program her interests shifted to children and families.
|The 22nd of February 1961 was an important day for psychology and psychotherapy in this country. It was the day fifty five years ago when The Institute first
opened its doors as a small clinic in South Yarra. We now represent an outstanding example of what psychology and psychotherapy can do for children, families and for the community.
We are currently leading the way in our clinical programs with children as young as four years, the distresses facing older adults and gaining a greater understanding of complex issues through the research conducted by our School of Psychology Counselling and Psychotherapy. To mark this important milestone in our history we invite you to join a group of international experts in the field of psychoanalysis, medicine and psychotherapy, involved in the prevention and treatment of childhood trauma.
