About Tamar Ackerman

Pursuing her graduate studies at the New York University Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, Tamar Ackerman will complete her M.A. in Art Therapy in January 2012. In April 2011, she formally presented her Master’s thesis to the school, focusing on the role of the art therapist as a maternal object of transference. Tamar Ackerman previously attended the institution’s College of Arts and Science as an undergraduate, earning a B.A. in Psychology and Jewish History and graduating with high honors. 

For nearly a year, Ms. Ackerman has functioned as an Art Therapy Intern at the Henry Ittleson Center in the Bronx. The facility focuses on healing children with behavioral and emotional issues, as well as those with complex trauma. In March 2011, Tamar Ackerman presented her research on facilitating a corrective relational experience through art therapy to a team of clinicians at the Ittleson Center, part of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services. This research, based on her experience with children at the center, was the basis for her Master's thesis. 

Tamar Ackerman currently serves as an art therapy summer staff member at the Rebecca School, for children on the autistic spectrum. Ms. Ackerman was trained in the Developmental, Individual Difference, Relationship-based (DIR/Floortime Model) Model, which focuses on building healthy foundations for social, emotional, and intellectual capacities rather than focusing on skills and isolated behaviors.
