About Dr. Schwab

Dr. Charlotte Rolnick Schwab, a psychotherapist for over twenty-five years and a former professor of social psychology, has spent most of her professional life in the New York Metropolitan Area, practicing in Manhattan and Connecticut. She now lives and practices in Hadley, Mass.

In addition to working in private practice, Dr. Schwab was a professor of Social Psychology, Women's Studies and Social Work at Hunter College of the City University of New York (CUNY). She is also a noted lecturer, seminar and workshop leader who specializes in helping women and men to communicate and negotiate effectively and to create healthy, successful personal and business relationships.

Dr. Schwab is the author of a new groundbreaking book, Sex, Lies, and Rabbis: Breaking a Sacred Trust , which is the first book of its kind to detail the problem of rabbinical sexual abuse in Judaism.

As someone who was married to a rabbi who perpetrated such abuse, Dr. Schwab comes at the subject from a unique perspective, as well as from a viewpoint as a therapist and counselor to other victims, and as a passionate social commentator on what needs to be done to further highlight and address this heretofore hidden problem.

Dr. Schwab's book defines clergy sexual abuse, gives information about what leads rabbis and other clergy to become sexual predators and offers suggestions for the prevention of such abuse. The book includes suggestions to bring about healing for the victims of such abuse and presents policies synagogues and other denominations should adopt to combat this issue.
