Don and Debra are a team both at home and at the office. Married for thirty-five years, they’ve simultaneously served as directors of the Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara. They oversee the work of fourteen therapists seeing couples and families, continue to train hundreds of therapists in integrative models of therapy, and present workshops for parents and professionals on a variety of topics related to families. They are also each seen as experts on additional topics—Debra on legal and ethical issues in psychotherapy, and Don, on children’s character, social and emotional development. He has presented workshops for the National Association of Education for Young Children, the California Psychological Association, the California Kindergarten Association and the Character Education Partnership. They are invited favorites as presenters at Cottage Hospital Psychiatric Grand Rounds, and provide consultation to physicians, schools, non-profits, parent groups, churches, mental health associations, attorneys, prisons and juvenile justice facilities.
