Howard C. Wolfe, MA, LMFT, was trained as a Family Sociologist before completing two marriage and family therapy programs, one at Penn State (MA) in Human Development and one at The Minnesota State University (PhD program) in Home Economics. He has been practicing for many years in a variety of settings including street work with youth, mental health clinics (as a clinician, supervisor, and director), and in private practice.
He has directed two successful Center for Substance Abuse Prevention Substance Abuse Prevention Grants. His work is split between providing training and consultation on child guidance and substance abuse prevention and treatment for youth, and a private practice in Marriage and Family Therapy in Arlington, MA.
His career is dedicated to helping children grow up and understanding the things that keep them from growing up. He believes that the Family Systems approach can play an important and unique role by promoting healthy parenting and families through couple and family therapy and parent education.
