SPEECH TITLES AND/OR TOPICS
Stanley H. Teitelbaum, Ph.D., is a Clinical Psychologist and author of Sports Heroes, Fallen Idols (University of Nebraska Press, 2005). His book examines the moral climate of modern sports. He investigates all of the major sports and dissects the careers of most of the usual suspects (Pete Rose, Tonya Harding and O. J. Simpson to name three), within the context of society's unwillingness to endorse the concept of responsibility, our fascination with celebrity and our general erosion of values.
In his speeches, Dr. Teitelbaum discusses a variety of issues from drug and alcohol abuse to domestic violence, gambling and today's scourge, steroids. In his psychotherapy practice, he has worked extensively with professional athletes and sports agents-which has enabled him to gain insight into the psyche of sports figures-both on and off the field. His presentations help us see past our sports stars' exalted images and show us what that frail imagery says about our society and ourselves.
Dr. Teitelbaum has been a practicing clinical psychologist for more than thirty-five years. Since 1980, he has been a Training Analyst and Senior Supervisor and Faculty Member at the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health and also the Training Institute for Mental Health, both in New York City. He is also a founder of the Contemporary Center for Advanced psychoanalytic Studies in New Jersey. He is the author of numerous articles in leading mental health publications and has appeared on more than twenty-five national television and radio shows.
During the past twenty years, in addition to his radio and television appearances, Dr. Teitelbaum has been interviewed frequently for newspaper and magazine articles on human motivation on such diverse topics as "Preventative Strategies in Dealing with Sports Rage", "Women as Targets of Athletes' Violence" and "Spectator Sports Psychology."
Dr. Teitelbaum is a member of many professional organizations including the American Psychological Association, American Group Psychotherapy Association, Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society and the Postgraduate Psychoanalytic Society.
Dr. Teitelbaum earned a B.A. in Psychology from Brooklyn College, an M.A. in Psychology and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology both from Boston University. In his spare time, he is a devoted tennis player and has won several trophies. Dr. Teitelbaum is also available for speeches and workshops.
