FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Austen Riggs Center Receives Major Grant to Support Human Development Strategic Initiative

Stockbridge, MA – April 6, 2017 – The Austen Riggs Center, through the Erikson Institute for Education and Research, has received a major grant from the John Leopold Weil and Geraldine Rickard Weil Memorial Charitable Foundation, Inc., to support its new Human Development Strategic Initiative. This multilayered initiative encompasses community intervention, research, and education, which are central tasks of the Erikson Institute. According to Dr. Donna Elmendorf, director of the Austen Riggs Therapeutic Community Program and leader of the Human Development Strategic Initiative, “The primary aim of this new endeavor is to support infant, child, and family mental health in Berkshire County, while also bringing a deeper understanding of the developmental process to the Riggs staff and patients. The Human Development Strategic Initiative will apply our relational view of early development to a community-based preventive model of care. The offerings will build on learning from our Therapeutic Community Program in which an individual is recognized, understood, and supported in the broader contexts of family, community, and society. This initiative provides an opportunity to extend the impact of our work beyond the small number of patients who have access to our intensive residential treatment through meaningful engagement in our local community. Staff and patients at Austen Riggs will, in turn, benefit from this effort as we deepen our knowledge about the impact of early adversity on the unfolding developmental process and about the importance of recognizing children’s early efforts at communicating. We are very grateful to the Weil Foundation for this important support.” Read the rest of this post »
