Meet Laurel Ginsburgh, author of "In Doc We Trust," on Saturday, June 13th from 6-8pm.
In Doc We Trust
The thing of it is that when we go to a doctor, we put our trust in them. We assume that they are there to help us and if they can't, they will send us to someone who can. In Doc We Trust, almost as much as In God We Trust. But should we? I guess you really have to evaluate if the doctor is trustworthy-professionally trustworthy. I was naive and gullible, despite the fact that I had completed a PhD at Columbia University at the age of 27. I had a poor self-concept and after four and a half years of treatment at the hand of an abusive psychiatrist, I had become unable to function. I had spent the last two years in bed fighting a delusional obsession. There had to be a way out. Enter Dr. Harry Albert, the guardian angel who led me out of hell, gave me my life back and guided me to hold the abusive psychiatrist accountable for what he had done to me. In Doc We Trust is a true story of a tragic experience I had as a young woman in psychotherapy. I believe there is much in the story that others will identify with, and I hope that they will not become victims as I did. For others, this is just an amazing story with an unusual end that I think you will enjoy reading.
Laurel Ginsburgh completed a PhD at a very young age and has had a career both in university teaching and the practice of speech-language pathology. She has since retired and lives in Southern Delaware with her four cats.
