Dr. Moshe Landsman

"I was born in 1949 in Syracuse, NY and by the age of two lived in Nashville Tenn and then Gainesville FL, where my father was professor of Psychology at the University of Florida. My father, Ted Landsman, had once worked as Kurt Lewin's assistant as an undergraduate and was an early member of SPSSI.  In 1967 I moved to Israel and received my BA and MA degrees at the Hebrew University and PhD at Bar-Ilan University. For many years I worked in the field as a psychologist in the community. My work was with Moroccan and Indian Jews in small towns in the Israel desert, then with Palestinian Bedouins (where I set up several psychological services for Bedouin in southern Israel) and with Palestinians in Gaza. From the year 2000 I have become involved with Kosova, where I was instrumental in establishing the Department of Psychology at the University of Prishtina and later began working with school psychologists in Albania. Lately I have been working as field coordinator for establishing the clinical psychology track at Addis Ababa University in Ethiopia. In Israel I teach at Kaye Academic Teachers College in Beer-Sheva. I am married to Leah Shakdiel for 31 years and have 7 children (one of them a long-term foster child) and 25 grandchildren."
