We recognize the critical times that humanity is crossing and are aware of the crucial role that psychologists can play with providing people with the resources needed to facing the complex and multiple challenges of the modern world.

At The Family Institute we believe that traditional and contemporary psychologies, the ongoing research in mind, brain and health are particularly relevant to today’s questions. We take a multi-disciplinary approach and our programs encompass the contributions of the fields of anthropology, education, medicine, evolutionary biology, neuroscience, and ecology, along with the ancient systems of learning and spirituality.
