Dr. Judy Kuriansky Biography

 
Dr. Judy Kuriansky
Dr. Judy Kuriansky

fondly called “Dr. Judy”

by so many who know and love her,

 is an internationally-known clinical psychologist, humanitarian, philanthropist, author, and award-winning journalist. 

     Dr. Judy does so many things in a day, people ask,

“Where do you get the time?”

 Judy's answer:

 “I make the day 26/7.”

 Given how productive she has been all her life in
so many different fields, they also ask, 

“How do you do it all?”


Judy's answer,

 “Passion to make a difference.
Just say ‘yes’, and figure it out.”
 

     So many people know Dr. Judy from the media. 

They may have heard her on the radio, hosting a top-rated call-in shows, on WABC and Z100, giving wise advice
-- in an engaging format as a

“media psychologist”,


a role Judy pioneered!

Famous rock stars have served as

“honorary love doctors”

 like Gwen Stefani and Aerosmith's Steven Tyler.

Or they’ve seen Judy on TV,

 as a feature reporter on

 WABC-TV, WCBS-TV

and hosting

“Money and Emotions” on CNBC-TV,

or analyzing celebrities on

“Showbiz Tonight”


on MSNBC-TV 

Distinctively,
Judy, is the only person to be given Phil Donahue’s microphone
on his show to “work” the audience,

or to interview Geraldo Rivera on his own show!

   Judy, has also given her signature advice in newspapers from
the Daily News to the Singapore Straits Times,
 currently writing for Black Star News.

 Judy, also been profiled in People and Rolling Stone

 (where’s she been on the cover of a special issue).  
 

     From playing the starring role of the Queen
 in her 2nd grade play,

Judy, now invests in Broadway, including

“Ain’t Too Proud” about the Temptations,

 “TINA” about Tina Turner
 
“Donna” about Donna Summer,

and

 “A Piano Lesson” starring Samuel L. Jackson.

    The jukebox musical choices make sense since she was a rock musician playing bass in an all-girl band,
and now writes and does back-up singing 
with international musician

 Russell Daisey

performing original anthems about hope and healing,
 

 like

 “Every Woman, Every Child”

aligned with the United Nations campaign,

 “One in Faith”

for the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week,

“Hope is Alive

for resilience and recovery,

and

“Honor Our Girls”,


written for First Lady Fatima Maada Bio’s

#HandsOffOurGirls campaign.

They have performed for
the Dalai Lama, Reverend Desmond Tutu,
and other dignitaries, and at peace festivals around the world including in Japan, France and Mexico.

      All that, and Judy is also a serious academic,
with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology. 

Once a Senior Research Scientist at
 Columbia Medical School’s Psychiatric Institut
e, 

Judy is now a

 Professor of Psychology and Education
at Columbia University Teachers College,


 and oversees international projects and missions,
and speaking, on diverse topics and in countries worldwide,

 including 

Haiti disaster recovery;

Women’s rights in Beirut;

Refugees in Jordan;

 climate change and health
at the World Government Summit in Dubai;

training Chinese volunteers;

 supporting Nepalese health workers,

 and producing COVID-19 response webinars
and interventions worldwide.


Judy, lectures worldwide and was a visiting professor at
Peking Health Sciences Center
and
 the Hong Kong Psychiatric Institute,

and spent 20 years training doctors in China
 and equal time teaching and doing her radio show in Japan.
 

     In the world of diplomacy,
Judy, has been at the United Nations for over 20 years
 as an NGO Representative of

 the International Association of Applied Psychology

and

World Council for Psychotherapy

in consultative status with ECOSOC
and in association with
the Department of Global Communications.

Judy's, distinguished accomplishments 
have included 
securing the inclusion of mental health and well-being

 in the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,

the Political Declaration for UHC,

 and the Global Compact for Migration.

Judy,  co-founded the

 UN Group of

Friends of Mental Health and Well-being,

in partnership with Ambassador Caleb Otto of Palau.  

Judy, has co-organized, moderated and been a speaker
 at innumerable UN events,

including for

UN Commission on the Status of Women,

Commission on Social Development, Science,


 Technology and Innovation Forum,


World Interfaith Harmony Week,

the UN High-Level Political Forum,

and many others.

    As a humanitarian,

Judy, has co-developed a girls camp in Africa,

and is notably a first responder
providing post-disaster recovery worldwide
to build psychological resilience after terrorism,
natural disasters and epidemics,
 including after 9’ll, school shootings,
 and in Japan, China, Iran, St. Maarten, Sri Lanka, Haiti,
 and for Syrian refugees in Jordan.

Significantly,  Judy, went to Sierra Leone
not only during AIDS
but during Ebola
when everyone was running away,
 about which she wrote a book, 

“The Psychosocial Issues of a Deadly Epidemic:
 What Ebola has Taught us about Holistic Healing”. 

She co-developed the Global Kids Connect Project

that promotes resilience of children and communities
around the world,

and the Stand Up for Peace Project

that does peace charity concerts, symposia, and memorials with original songs and workshops worldwide. 

 

     Consistent with this range of accomplishments

 are Judy's book subjects,

ranging from interpersonal relationships, including 

“The Complete Guide to A Healthy Relationship”

and

“31 Things to Raise a Child’s Self-Esteem”

 
to international relations, like 

“Ecospsychology:
The Intersection of Psychology and Environmental Protection”
 

and

 “Beyond Bullets and Bombs:
 Grassroots Peacebuilding between Israelis and Palestinians.” 
 

Some people are surprised she is the same

“Dr. Judy" who has been called

 “the younger taller Dr. Ruth” and wrote 674 pages on

Generation Sex:
America’s Hottest Sex Therapist Answers
the Hottest Questions about Sex”
 


and 4 volumes on “Sexuality Education.” 

Her latest co-edited volumes are on: 

Psychosocial Experiences and Adjustment of Migrants:
 Coming to the USA”


 and 

“Resilient Health:
Leveraging Technology and Social Innovations to
Transform Healthcare for COVID-19 Recovery and Beyond”

.

     “What does the Middle East conflict have to do with
tantric sex?”


 Judy, has been asked.  Judy's answer:

 “It’s all about communication, respecting
and listening to each other.”


     Dr. Judy knows Africa
.

A Trustee of the United African Congress,

 and

Policy Advisor to
His Excellency Ambassador Sidique Wai
of the Embassy of Sierra Leone to the United States,


Judy,  has hosted a

U.S.-Africa Business Expo

and

the First Ladies of Africa Health Summit,

and Judy has also served on the Board of

Voices of Africa Mothers.

 Judy is a strong advocate about gender equality,

 she has presented at innumerable events during the

Commission on the Status of Women
on empowerment and leadership,


 and supports

 First Lady of Sierra Leone Fatima Maada Bio’s

#HandsOffOurGirls campaign.       
 

    Judy's many awards include:

 a Humanitarian Award for Lifetime Achievement
in Global Peace and Tolerance.


 And significantly,

Sierra Leone President Julius Maada Bio

recently awarded her as

Grand Commander of the Order of the Rokel.

     A veteran New Yorker,

Judy is an “Army brat”

 who grew up on Fort Campbell in Kentucky
when her father was a dentist for the 101st Airborne Division

She now lives in New York. 

     She received her

Ph.D. from New York University
and her B.A. degree from Smith College.


“There’s so much to learn every day,”

Judy says. 

“People and the world are full of wonder.”

     “Never regret what didn’t happen,”
 

is a saying Judy also lives by.

“That opened the door for a new
- and better – possibility.”
