Dr. Gerald Jampolsky, a child and adult psychiatrist, is the founder of Attitudinal Healing and the first model Center for Attitudinal Healing in 1975 in Tiburon, California. Dr. Diane Cirincione-Jampolsky, a therapist and private entrepreneur, joined Dr. Jampolsky in 1981 and together they work in affiliation with the independent Centers and Groups for Attitudinal Healing located on six continents.
The Jampolsky Outreach Foundation (JOF) was originally founded in 1979 to supplement the work of the first Center of Attitudinal Healing.
One of the children, who came to the Center with his family for support, had his leg amputated as a result of cancer. The family’s insurance company paid for the first prostheses, but did not allow payment for additional ones as he grew. Thus, the foundation was born to support those in need.
Since then, Drs. Jampolsky and Cirincione-Jampolsky, in the name of the Jampolsky Outreach Foundation, respond to a broad spectrum of challenges facing individuals, couples, families, organizations, and communities. They have served chronically ill and life-threatened children and adults and their families; health care professionals; government officials and legislators; principles, teachers, students and their schools; couples and families; prisoners; those working with racial healing and the roots of discriminations; religious leaders; the elderly; those facing loss and grief; indigenous peoples; inner city of incarcerated youth; and victims of disasters, crises and trauma.
While there are numerous areas in which JOF continues to serve, the common thread that unites them is clear and consistent. Namely, the Principles of Attitudinal Healing transcend situational differences, customs and cultures, religions and races, and are the cornerstones of how to practically apply universal spiritual principles in everyday life.
The Jampolsky Outreach Foundation in conjunction with Attitudinal Healing International continues to respond to requests for mentoring, training, consultation, leadership, and support to the ever growing number of International Centers for Attitudinal Healing around the world.
JOF has helped support the development of Centers and Groups around the world, including assistance with trainings and scholarships for travel. The worldwide response of the Jampolsky Outreach Foundation for humanitarian, educational, conflict resolution, and support work continues to be made possible through the generosity and support of its wonderful donors.
