Catskill Family Institute (CFI) of Kingston, NY, opened its doors in 1981 with the goal of providing quality psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families using a practical, solution-focused approach. Drs. Joe Eron, Tom Lund, and Steve Dagirmanjian, the managing partners of Catskill Family Institute, remain committed to this tradition of service which is both accessible and able to be applied to the way we live our lives every day.
Catskill Family Institute is a center for the study of helpful conversations; a place where we continue to explore and promote ways to bring out the best in people, and to disseminate this knowledge to people who would like to positively influence the lives of others.
Catskill Family Institute’s treatment philosophy and approach have been published by Drs. Eron and Lund in a book entitled Narrative Solutions in Brief Therapy (Guilford, 1996). The three managing partners have also contributed numerous book chapters and journal articles. The approach has been taught to helping professionals around the world.
