Frank C. Sacco, Ph.D.

Dr. Sacco began his professional career working at the University of Massachusetts in the late Sixties in a drop-in center dealing with runaways, transient addicts, and psychedelic emergencies. This work led Dr. Sacco into Massachusetts deinstitutionalization of state-operated facilities for delinquents, chronically mentally ill, and the mentally deficient. This early experience set the foundation for a life's commitment to working in the community with the toughest families without residential or secure back-up.

Dr. Sacco is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts and has a Ph. D. in Psychology from the Humanistic Psychology Institute. Currently, he is the President of Community Services Institute, a private licensed mental health clinic serving multiple-problem families referred by the state for child abuse, neglect, and domestic violence.

Dr. Sacco pioneered the use of home-based interventions with hard-to-reach, often violent and resistant families. He has published over a dozen papers and books chapters on family therapy and community violence. He has been a program developer in the USA as well as in Jamaica. He specializes in violence reduction at home, in the school, and at the workplace. He is an experienced mediator, presenter and expert witness in cases of protective services and violence. He has consulted with the FBI on school shootings.

Dr. Sacco is a Second Degree Black Belt in Han-Pul Martial arts and is active in developing special applications of traditional martial arts to violent adolescents, bully prevention, self protection, and other personal safety training.

He has Written and Directed 3 other videos: PERSONAL SAFETY FOR WOMAN (Grant from the Continental Cable Endowment), GET HOME ALIVE: COMMON SENSE AND PEPPER SPRAY, and PREVENTING TEEN SEXUAL HARASSMENT.
