Gilbert Kliman, MD invented Reflective Network Therapy; successfully replicated in public and private therapeutic and special education preschool settings.

December 16, 2015. The American Psychoanalytic Association (APSAA) formally announced that its annual award for psychoanalytically informed work—which specifically includes educators and psychotherapists working together, delivering ongoing systematic learning—goes to the founder and medical director of CPHC, Gilbert Kliman. The method benefits 3 to 7 year old children with ASD, PTSD, a broad range of other serious emotional disorders as well as Social Communication Disorders, ADHD, behavior disorders and other obstacles to learning. Teachers and therapists alike grasp and are able to use the method very quickly. Reflective Network Therapy is manualized for replication and has an over 300 hour archive of videotaped treatments. The method has been replicated by more than 25 teacher-therapist teams in New York, California, Washington, Oklahoma, Massachusetts and Michigan, and in Buenos Aires. Statistically significant IQ rises in children treated with RNT (regardless of diagnosis) is a benefit of the method’s intensive and high quantity of interpersonal exercises. Outcome studies show that RNT routinely produces sustained, statistically significant IQ rises (and robust mental health gains) for IQ testable children, usually within eight months of starting treatment.
