of the virtual classroom, Dr. Howard Chusid is a founding partner of the Family
Law Cooperative (www.familylawcooperative.com), a group of caring
professionals who offer a cooperative and collaborative approach to divorce,
financial difficulties, and other family disputes. “Unlike the usual options out there, we guide
couples through the confusing and emotionally charged divorce process in an
atmosphere of mutual respect and dignity, where the children’s welfare and
well-being comes first and foremost,” Dr. Chusid says.

becoming a licensed mental health counselor, Dr. Chusid had a very interesting
background. Back in the 70s, Dr. Chusid earned an associate’s degree in radiologic
technology, a bachelor’s degree in physiology, and a master’s degree in community
health education. He was a college professor in radiologic technology and
coauthored two books on developing radiologic technology curriculum. He also
taught science in the local public school system. In the 80s, he started
working with managed health care organizations, and Dr. Chusid founded (and
eventually sold) a very successful Medicaid HMO.
Dr. Chusid experienced great success in the business world, he was not immune
to financial issues and experienced some setbacks later on. After overcoming
these obstacles and a successful 30-year career in health care and administration/management,
Dr. Chusid went back to school at age 53 to earn his doctorate in counseling psychology.
He then proceeded to become a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and a National
Certified Counselor in the state of Florida.
Chusid felt fortunate and blessed in his own life and wanted to help the less
fortunate. He and his wife started Kesher, a K-12 school for children with
learning disabilities, which opened in 1995 and today serves more than 80 students.
Scores of alumni have gone to college and are now engaged in successful careers.
Dr. Chusid remains on the Board. “I consider the Kesher school to be one of my
most precious accomplishments,” he says.
addition to his current work with kids in crisis and families going through
divorce, Dr. Chusid also counsels people regarding their life pursuits. He also
aids “graduates of war” under a subcontract with the Veterans Administration. You

Depression” in our Center for Public Service faculty articles section.
