Additional Professional Experience

 

In 1969, I became supervisor of the first out-patient department for Beth Israel Medical Center's Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program. This was the first methadone maintenance program in the world, created by Drs. Marie Nyswander and Vincent Dole. It was the model for similar treatment programs later created all over the country. I remained in this position for ten years achieving the first of my Master's degrees during this time.

 

 

In 1986, I helped start Sony Corp's first Employee Assistance Program in the New York/New Jersey area.

 

 

From 1987 to 1993 I worked as a clinician in a residential school for severely emotionally disturbed adolescent and pre-adolescent girls. Most of these girls had been abused throughout their lives. It was here that I began to develop my approach to parenting... that respect and trust were the major components to positive change.

 

 

From 1994 to 2000, I developed and coordinated the Adolescent Treatment Program of Hunterdon Medical Center's Behavioral Health Department. As coordinator, I had the dual responsibility of supervising counselors and social workers in the treatment of emotionally disturbed adolescents and their families as well as being counselor for the more difficult clients. I also ran a group for stepparents who were having problems dealing with angry stepchildren.

 

 

From 1995 to 2000, I served as director of Hunterdon Medical Center's "Smokeless" Program. It was a program offered to the community to help people become non-smokers. It utilized a variety of strategies including hypnosis.
