He doesn't want to "moralize folks," but he believes people need to start learning early on that "certain things just aren't right."
Drawing on 20 years of professional experience in the mental health field, counseling children and families, Jay Krunszyinsky has developed a system that he hopes will "make people slow down and see what's really important in relationships."
In his book, "I'm Sorry: Repairing Hurtful Relationships," Krunszyinsky addresses how issues such as negative messages, codependency and perfectionism can lead to hurtful behavior. He outlines a morality-based approach to help people process this hurt and develop healthy relationships.
A 1979 graduate of Greensburg Salem High School, Krunszyinsky holds a master's degree in counseling from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. As a state certified psychiatric rehabilitation practitioner and abuse investigator, he has worked for numerous human service agencies, counseling families, children, adolescents and adults.
