Miriam Reitz

​Miriam Reitz currently assists ICSW students with their dissertation research and is a member of the Faculty Advisory Committee. Her areas of clinical expertise include anything related to couple and family diagnosis and treatment, especially assessing the individual’s problems in a family context and issues involving adoption. She practices individual psychodynamic theory with an emphasis on development and an overlay of family systems theory. For her doctoral dissertation, Dr. Reitz interviewed couples in their first year of marriage about their relationships, and followed up with half of them at years 5, 10, 15, and 20. She plans to analyze the data and write a book about her findings.
