Jerzy E. Henisz

02 July 1937 -

Jerzy E. Henisz was born in Warsaw, Poland in 1937. His family was in hiding in Romania during World War II, because his father refused to sign-in as an ethnic German during the Nazi occupation of Poland. The Henisz family returned to Poland in 1945, where Jerzy studied psychology and medicine, and completed his training in psychiatry.

In 1969, Dr. Henisz escaped communist-ruled Poland via Austria, and subsequently moved to the United States. In 1970, he was hired by the Department of Psychiatry of the Yale University School of Medicine, and served as a Yale faculty member until his retirement in 2003.

Doctor Henisz is an author of over forty papers published in psychiatric journals and four books. His literary writings include short stories published in Poland, one play, several novellas, one novel and children’s stories. He lives with his wife Anna in Connecticut, where he had been in private practice of psychiatry and psychotherapy since 1983 until his retirement in 2008.
