About Jan Resnick

It’s difficult to answer the question: "who am I?". But perhaps this goes some way toward a sense of what is important to me.I was born and grew up in New York, then at 21 years old I moved to Europe.I have been fortunate to travel a good deal and perhaps uniquely lived a third of my life in the US, another third in Europe and the past third or more now in Australia – which has taught me much about these different cultures. Happily married, my wife Cath and I share 6 children and 2 grandchildren.I have been involved in the study and practice of psychotherapy, specifically phenomenology and psychoanalysis, since my uni days, for over 40 years now. Before that, I studied philosophy, psychology and music at university in the 70s; these subjects have always remained a passion. I have an on-going love affair with the arts including painting, sculpture, music (various genres), theatre and dance for my entire adult life. I have played piano on and off over the years and one of my greatest regrets is not to have had more time for it. I have also played sport for most of my life until 1998 when injury curtailed this activity, but I can play AFL football vicariously.I have made my personal relationships a priority and feel so grateful for my kids, and theirs, plus my friends, past lovers and longer-term partners, specifically for the opportunity to love and be loved which has made life most worth living. No doubt this have much to do with why my first published book, How Two Love, is on the theme of love and relationship.Lastly, my role as father is perhaps the most important of all. Being a parent has been the greatest challenge and most profoundly rewarding role of my adult life. I am blessed with having six awesome kids, which has enriched my life immeasurably, more than I can say. The experience of raising them has also ‘raised’ me as a Dad and as a person. I can only hope they have benefitted at least a fraction as much from me as I have from them.
