Circle - The Center for Attitudinal Healing
To provide psychological help to people experiencing difficult life situations and to spread knowledge aimed at harmonizing the inner life of people and society.
“Circle” was founded in 1994 by Carolyn Smith and Kathy Harris of the Tiburon/Sausalito center and Tatyana Ignashova, the first executive director of "Circle." Carolyn and Kathy were recipients of a USAID grant which funded the first two years of the Moscow center’s existence. They hired staff and provided training in attitudinal healing and the facilitation of support groups.
Since 1995 “Circle” has been self-sustaining. Twice it has received the Jampolsky Award for outstanding projects in Attitudinal Healing. Irina Kossova has been "Circle’s" director since 1997.
The Level 1 Attitudinal Healing Facilitator Training was organized and coordinated by the largest Russian AIDS service organization,AIDS-Infoshare. The workshop was facilitated by Carolyn Smith, co-founder of the Moscow CAH,and Joe Kerry, former board president of the ICAH, Sausalito, California.
Currently we are facilitating support groups for people with cancer and their family members, for elderly people and for people with disabilities.
We lead training seminars for psychologists, teachers and the staff of non-profit and government social service agencies on the following subjects:
- Effective Communication
- Stress Reduction
- Models of Professional Behavior
We also lead “Family Constellation” workshops following the method of Bert Hellinger (systemic family therapy).
In 2005 Russia Center for Attitudinal Healing is one of the recipients of the Jampolsky Awards, given for their implementation of AH training into the National Social Service system.
