About the center


The Center for Attitudinal Healing was founded in 1975 in Marin County, by Gerald Jampolsky M.D., a child and adult psychiatrist and author, to provide support for individuals and families in their efforts to address life’s many challenges. The psycho-social-spiritual support group model developed in the Center is used today in dozens of countries worldwide—with independent locations in schools, hospitals, churches and homes under the umbrella of Attitudinal Healing International founded by Dr. Jampolsky and Diane Cirincioni, Ph.D.

Today the Center for Attitudinal Healing – North Bay provides support groups in the Bay Area for people facing such issues as chronic and life-threatening illness, caregiving of loved ones, bereavement, aging, unemployment, marriage and parenting problems, divorce, loneliness, and stress. The groups utilize a model that supports inner growth, and they assist members in adopting new ways to solve problems and relate to others.

Our work is based on the Principles of Attitudinal Healing — twelve tenets that inspire one to live in the present moment, to realize that no matter what their life circumstances are, they have a choice as to whether they experience peace or conflict, love or fear.  Group members often find personal meaning in the principles and enrich their lives through trading their fearful perceptions for unconditional love, inner peace, forgiveness and generosity of spirit.

The Center is nonprofit and nonsectarian.  All groups are free, and they provide a venue for sharing feelings and experiences in a nonjudgmental, confidential environment.  To receive more information or to join a group, please call (415) 457-1000 or email us at  [email protected].
