Julian Breslow, PhD, AM earned his PhD in English Literature from the John’s Hopkins University in 1974, an AM in Clinical Social Work from the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration in 1978, and a Masters in Educational Administration from Northern Illinois University in 2001. From 1972–1976, Julian served on the faculty of the English Department at the University of Illinois in Chicago (UIC). In addition to UIC, Julian has developed and taught a variety of literature courses in literature and a course in Human Development and the Humanities at Roosevelt University, College of Lake County, Oakton Community College, and other colleges in and around Chicago. As a social worker, he worked full-time in special education. At the same time, his private practice clients included children, adolescents, adults, couples; individuals and families dealing with substance abuse; and children and adults with physical disabilities. Julian has written a musical about his experiences with students who have physical disabilities. For 35 years, Julian facilitated an Older Adult Men’s Group at a subsidized building in Skokie. Julian is currently an active participant in classes at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) of Northwestern University, where he also co-coordinates a 3-year course on In Search of Lost Time. In addition, he volunteers with the Good Memories Choir, where he assists people who are diagnosed with early-stage dementia and their care partners. In literature, as in psychotherapy, Julian’s focus is on the individual who is telling the story.
