Raymond A. Levy, Psy.D., Executive Director, The Fatherhood Project
Today's guest is Dr. Raymond A. Levy, the Executive Director of the Fatherhood Project. The Fatherhood Project is a non-profit fatherhood program in the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Boston, MA. The mission of the program is to improve the health and well-being of children and families by empowering fathers to be knowledgeable, active, and emotionally engaged with their children.
Dr. Levy is a clinical psychologist specializing in psychoanalysis, with over thirty five years of experience in the field. In this podcast we talk about the training Dr. Levy underwent to become a psychotherapist and his career leading up to his founding of the Fatherhood Project. We then talk about the origins of the Fatherhood Project, the kinds of programming and research Dr. Levy’s team undertakes, and the challenges of running a small, mission oriented non-profit.
I think listeners will get a lot out of this interview. First, Dr. Levy does a very nice job explaining the field of psychotherapy which is very interesting. Second, his discussion of how the Fatherhood Project grew out of a research project is enlightening about the origins of great innovations.
