Ackerman’s upcoming Moving Families Forward gala is featured on Broadway World. The piece highlights the vast accomplishments our 2019 honorees and presenters, and the gala’s theme of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Please join us in extending a warm welcome to our new faculty members and teaching fellows for the 2019-2020 Academic Year:
The Ackerman Institute for the Family is heartbroken over the mass shootings that took place in El Paso Texas, Dayton Ohio, and Gilroy California over the past several days. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and all those impacted by these senseless acts of bigotry. We condemn in the strongest terms white supremacist ideology, xenophobia, and gun violence.
Committed to social justice, we stand in solidarity with the Latinx community, and with immigrant communities at the Institute and the world over. As therapists, we are ready to offer care and support to those in grief and distress over this tragedy.
Congratulations to the Ackerman Institute for the Family Class of 2019! This year we celebrate the accomplishments of 14 talented graduates who have completed their training in our clinical externship program.
Joined by supervisors, family, and friends, the externs received certificates of completion at a ceremony held at the Ackerman Institute on July 17, 2019.
We are honored to recognize the outstanding work of this year’s graduates:
Robert Abbot, Alison Baker, Lisa Berey, Edgar Galvis, Ana Guerrero, Kalli Kofinas, Ariana Kropsky, Sarah McCaslin, Allison Nelson, Ali Kander Rudolph, Arianna Schindle, Melissa Thoen, Eloise True, Kedelyn Urbaniak

After 40 years of service at the Ackerman Institute, our dear Erlyne Evans will retire from her post as Front Desk Receptionist in June 2019. Erlyne has been a fixture of the Ackerman community since she started with us in the 1970s at our former 78th street townhouse location.
Over the years, she has welcomed countless families through the doors of our clinic, and has been a loving, integral part of our team. Erlyne has witnessed us grow personally and professionally, and has generously supported so many of us with humor and wisdom. She will be dearly missed.
We are grateful for Erlyne’s decades of commitment to the Ackerman Institute, and wish her health, happiness, and joy in her retirement years.
