James Brody Ph.D. was trained a quarter century ago at the University of
Pittsburgh in physiological experimental psychology and moved
into clinical work, with special interest in behavior
modification, program administration, and psychopharmacology.
He has consistently been an empiricist, more interested in what
works than in ultimate theories. Nonetheless, he is attracted
to the notion of describing principles of human behavior in
language that also applies to other living forms. The Greek
Cynics believed that “Truth” can be known but by careful
observation, not by asking authority. Jim instinctively follows
that credo, having it reinforced by his undergraduate education
in liberal arts at Denver University where one of the major
themes was to “accept the word of no man as final.”

He gets a mental buzz from new ideas, especially ones that make a
shift in his existing concepts so that he spends months
rechecking everything.

He’s a bit off the fragmented, main path of Evolutionary
Psychology that uses hunters and gatherers as key models and
inspiration for hypotheses about modern behavior and CNS
functions. His favorite authors on evolution and nature are
Loren Eiseley, Carl Sagan, Stephen Gould, and Richard Dawkins.
He often likes to read these authors in a local shopping mall so
he can study the crowd and ask if the ideas would make sense to
and about the people around him.

Jim has doubts about Homo sapiens’ long term outcomes because of
our reproductive success. He hopes that Garrett Hardin is wrong
but doesn’t see how. He senses a clock ticking and a very short
time left to better manage ourselves and the earth. He can be contacted via his BOL Forums profile.

Vernon C. Kelly, Jr., M.D. was raised in Baltimore, Maryland
by parents with an intense emotional investment in sports of all kinds,
especially golf. He currently maintains a full-time private practice in
psychiatry in the Philadelphia area with a special interest in the
enhancement of emotional intimacy in couples and families. He attended
Williams College, graduating with honors in chemistry in 1966 and completed
his formal schooling at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in
1970.

He was drawn back to the Berkshires living in Stockbridge,
Massachusetts while he completed an internship with special emphasis in
psychiatry at the Berkshire Medical Center where he won the award for
Excellence in Performance of Duties as an Intern in 1971. His strong
interest in children led him to a Fellowship in Child Psychiatry at the
Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic from 1971 to 1973. Here he was exposed to
the pioneering family-based work of Salvador Minuchin and Jay Haley amongst
others of the structural school. He completed his formal training from 1973
to 1975 as a Resident in General Psychiatry at the Institute of Pennsylvania
Hospital where he remains on staff as an Attending Psychiatrist. He is also
a Clinical Associate in the Department of Psychiatry of the University of
Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

His continued interest in the treatment of children coupled with his family
and general psychiatry training forced him to believe that the changes in
the parental subsystem of a family are the most critical for the well-being
of the children. Thus he began to treat couples and encounter the powerful
emotional forces driving those relationships. Nothing in his formal training
had prepared him to understand the basis of this emotionality. Working with
Donald L. Nathanson, M.D. in the early 1980′s to uncover the biological and
emotional nature of shame, he encountered Professor Silvan S. Tomkins.
Amazed at the clarity and rightness of feel of Affect Theory and Script
Theory, Dr. Kelly began working with Tomkins a year or two before his death
in 1991 to link those theories of motivation to reasons why human beings
seek to form interpersonal relationships and why they succeed or fail.

Dr. Kelly is now distinguished for the definition of intimacy he developed in
conjunction with Professor Silvan S. Tomkins and the innovative methods of
couples treatment he has introduced in the past several years. His most
recent contribution is a chapter entitled “Affect and the Redefinition of
Intimacy” in the 1996 edited volume Knowing Feeling published by W. W. Norton.
After the death of Professor Tomkins and the formation of the Silvan S.
Tomkins Institute, Dr. Kelly was appointed Training Director in 1992 by
Executive Director Donald L. Nathanson, M.D. In four years as Training
Director, Dr. Kelly established the Silvan S. Tomkins Institute as a
national sponsor of continuing education of the American Psychological
Association and of continuing medical education of the Accreditation Council
for Continuing Medical Education; he initiated a membership drive that has
increased membership in the Institute to over 350 professionals
internationally; and he initiated and maintains responsibility for an
international network of study groups where interested professionals engage
in intensive study of Affect Theory and Script Theory. He is co-director of
the annual October meeting of the Silvan S. Tomkins Institute and Editor of
the quarterly Bulletin of the Tomkins Institute to which he regularly
contributes two columns.

His most recent honor was election in June 1995 to Fellowship in The College
of Physicians of Philadelphia. With the loving support of his wife Sharon,
his hobbies include computers and golf. His motto is: “Some say golf is life
in miniature, those who play know that life is golf in miniature.”

Donald L. Nathanson, M.D. attended Amherst College, where he studied experimental embryology (publishing his first paper in this field while an undergraduate) and pioneered the electron microscopy of the viruses that infected Salmonella bacteria, graduating with honors in 1956. A winner of the New York State Professional Scholarship competition, he attended the Medical School of the State University of New York at the Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, graduating in 1960. While in medical school he did research at the Medical Electronics Laboratory of the Rockefeller Institute in New York City, working with Vladimir Zworykin, inventor of both television and the electron microscope, and in London, working with Professor Dame Sheila Sherlock on the hepatic metabolism of synthetic steroids and Professor Paul Wood in clinical cardiology. After a Residency in Internal Medicine and Endocrinology at Hahnemann University Hospital, he served as Lieutenant Commander and Staff Endocrinologist at the Philadelphia Naval Hospital between 1964-66.

Dr. Nathanson’s growing awareness that neurobiology, endocrinology, and psychiatry were linked encouraged him next to take a Residency in Adult Psychiatry at the Institute of Pennsylvania Hospital and Hahnemann University Hospital, where he drew early attention to the importance of emotion in psychotherapy. On completion of this program in 1969, he established a private practice in adult psychiatry, concentrating on the psychotherapy and training of psychotherapists.

In 1981, he began to study the way each of us is influenced by the emotions of others, work that drew him to the pioneering writing of psychologist Silvan Tomkins and a long period of significant contributions to his field. Among his more than 100 publications are the immensely popular book Shame and Pride: Affect, Sex, and the Birth of the Self (WW Norton; 1992, paperback 1994), and a host of important scholarly papers. Dr. Nathanson is the author of the entries on “Emotion and Violence” and “Shame and Violence” for Scribner’s (1999) Encyclopedia of Violence in America. He has given more than 200 public presentations of this material throughout the Americas and Europe, and is widely known as the developer of an entirely new approach to psychotherapy called “The Philadelphia System.” As Executive Director of the href = "/orgs/ssti/index.html">Silvan S. Tomkins Institute, he leads an international organization of several hundred psychotherapists, clergy, lawyers, and scientists who share his interest in the nature of human emotion. Dr. Nathanson’s work is central to several systems for the healing of communities, and has led to the establishment of From Insult to Injury: A Plan to End School Violence, a program that by teaching children to identify and modulate their own emotions reduces the likelihood of violent behavior. It was in recognition of this work that President Clinton appointed him to the Academic Advisory Council of the National Campaign Against Youth Violence. Currently Clinical Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Jefferson Medical College, he has been honored by election as a Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and Fellow of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia, The American Orthopsychiatric Association, The Royal Society of Medicine (London), The Folger Shakespeare Library, and several other organizations. With his wife, Roz, he operates Mica Ridge Vineyard in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where he is now building a small astronomical observatory and continuing his work as a restorer of Renaissance and 17th century clocks. As lead columnist for Behavior OnLine he fields questions on theory and therapy from all parts of the globe in the Shame and Affect Theory Forum. He can be contacted at:

Henry T. Stein, Ph.D., is a Classical Adlerian psychotherapist, training
analyst, and director of the Alfred Adler Institute of San Francisco. He studied
with Sophia de Vries and Anthony Bruck who were trained by Alfred Adler. For
nearly twenty years, he has been training psychotherapists with an approach based
on the original teachings and therapeutic style of Alfred Adler, as well as the
clinical and philosophical writings of other Classical Adlerians: Kurt Adler,
Lydia Sicher, Alexander Mueller, Erwin Wexberg, and Alexander Neuer. His own
contributions to Classical Adlerian clinical practice include a comprehensive
adaptation of the Socratic method and a thorough exposition of the twelve stages
of psychotherapy.

Both are documented in Classical Adlerian Psychotherapy: A Socratic Approach,
a study/consultation program. For the past three years he has been managing the
Adlerian Translation Project which is dedicated to translating and publishing the
collected works of Alfred Adler and other Classical Adlerians.

Dr. Stein has explored the theoretical parallels between Adlerian principles and
the new conceptual models in mathematics, physics, and biology. He has integrated
Abraham Maslow’s and Alfred Adler’s visions of optimal human functioning, and has
extended the practice of Adlerian psychology into marathon group therapy, career
assessment, and management consulting. To facilitate the analysis of case material,
he uses computer software programs and the strategies of qualitative analysis. In
addition, he is applying the dynamics of the creative process to case
analysis, treatment planning, and the technique of psychotherapy. For the
past two years he has been piloting online distance education and case
consultation. He can be contacted via his BOL Forums profile.
