about Gerald Schoenewolf
Gerald Schoenewolf, Ph.D., is a New York licensed psychoanalyst who has been practicing for over 45 years. Over the years he has treated many unhappy males, who provided him with an insight into mass killers. His research about males led to his most recent book, The Mass Killer: How He Develops and What He Means, which was inspired by his concern about the rising number of mass killings in the United States. In addition to his psychotherapy practice, he was also an adjunct associate professor for 17 years at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, where he taught courses on basic psychology, child psychology and personality theories.
He began publishing books on psychology at the age of 46, when he called up Jason Aronson, publisher of Aronson Publishing, and discussed his idea for the book, 101 Common Therapeutic Blunders. His first book became an academic bestseller. He went on to publish 16 books on psychology and psychoanalysis, including Sexual Animosity between Men and Women, Forbidden Psychology: A Book for Dark Minds, The Art of Hating, and The Dictionary of Dream Interpretation. He has also translated two books of Eastern philosophy, The Way According to Lao Tzu, Chuang Tzu and Seng Tsan, and The Dhammapada: Teachings of Buddha.
Dr. Schoenewolf has been an active participant in the men’s movement, contributing a number of articles to A Voice for Men and appearing on several television talk shows. He is noted for his blog, “Mind Sight”, which he has written for many years, and for his two feature films, Therapy and Brooklyn Nights. He also produced a CD, “18 Video Song Poems,” for which he wrote the lyrics and composed and performed the music. He is described on Wikipedia as a psychoanalytic maverick. He has visited eighteen countries because of his interest in understanding people and cultures of the world.
He now lives in a mountain community in the Pocono Hills of Pennsylvania, where he does remote therapy, practices the piano, takes hikes, plays rummy with his wife, Julia and pulls the noses of his two cats, Max and Minnie, and the beak of his parrot, Lucky.
