He is an internationally recognized authority in the fields of psychiatry, health, business, and education. In 1975 he and some friends established the original Center for Attitudinal Healing in Tiburon, California, where children and adults with life threatening illnesses can find peace of mind that is transforming for them and their families. He founded the project, Children as Teachers of Peace, in 1982, which has now been expanded by others internationally. In 1987 he and his wife Diane Cirinciono, helped co-found the AIDS Hotline for Kids in Tiburon. There are now over 130 independent Centers for Attitudinal Healing in 24 countries serving their communities.

Dr. Jampolsky has published extensively, and is married to psychotherapist and author Diane Cirincione, and together they have lectured and consulted in the United States and abroad on psychology, psychiatry, mental and physical health, the power of our attitudes, life transitions, interpersonal relationships, health, education, and business as they affect both our personal and professional lives. They continue to work cross-culturally and globally with a local focus on what they call "practical spirituality."
