The International Psychoanalytic
Association recently awarded Dr. Margulies a grant to enable her to pursue attachment related research using a videotape feedback
intervention with mothers and their infants who reside in foster care. Her study is being conducted at St. Dominics. Marian's
philosophy of parenting is to partner with parents as they navigate the sometimes turbulent waters of parenting, to accompany
them on their journey of discovery of themselves as parents, of their children's true spirits and of ways to meet in moments,
so that the parent-infant and parent-child dance is one of attunement, one that is mutually choreographed and constantly evolving.
Given the challenges of parenting today, Dr. Margulies offers tools to work through these challenges, empowering parents to
discover their own sources of strength and deep knowledge about themselves and their children.
Dr. Margulies produces
and hosts a local access cable show "Conversations with Dr. Marian", a television show that spotlights topics about
parenting and infant and child development. (For sample video clips, go to "My Cable TV Show" page.) She is currently
spearheading and organizing a scientific exchange program between infant mental health professionals in New York and Latin
America. She is fluent in Spanish and Hebrew.
Dr. Marian Margulies has a private practice specializing in children
and adults with offices in Mamaroneck and the upper west side of Manhattan.
