Dr Miriam Grossman, psychiatrist and snake-oil merchant

Dr Miriam Grossman’s reputation precedes her, with her Australian Family Association sponsored trip to Australia to peddle her books and religiously inspired unscientific message on sex education.  If alarm bells aren’t going off by the involvement of the AFA, they should be with Rabbi Dr Shimon Cowen chairing the session she’s talking at.

Yesterday ABC PM fired their AuntyCanon™ at this dangerous doctor (Controversial American doctor condemns sex education in Australian schools).  Earlier in the week the Caulfield Glen Eira Leader gave Glen Eira College some reason to feel uncomfortable for hosting this snake-oil merchant (Controversial doctor to speak in Glen Eira).

Also shining the spotlight on Grossman were Bruce Llama (Grossman and Sex and Miriam Grossman talks about giving head) and Mike Stuchbery (GROSS, MAN.).

I’m sure this isn’t the last we’ve heard about this unfortunate situation.

Parents and children don’t need unscientific snake-oil messages being peddled about sex education, especially when there is a religious imperative underlying it all.  What the community needs to hear is proven findings from respectable scientific research.

Perhaps the most disturbing aspect to the message that psychiatrist Dr Miriam Grossman is delivering as “the truth” is that it is counter to that of her medical profession.  I’d be calling that malpractice and revoking her license if it was within my power.

  2. I dont agree says:

    I dont understand the above comments. Why is it that anyone who dares to question current educational ideology gets hit with the religious card? And gets abused? She is presenting a valid, well researched scientific viewpoint about chldren and teens that actually has nothing to do with religion .

    • How do you know that the research she is using is scientifically valid and that it has not been discredited?

        She was a UCLA campus doctor. She had 10+ years on the campus to have her heart broken by failed PC policies. Please read her book “You’re teaching our Children What?” before you throw stones. You are questioning the information from the U.S. Center for Disease Control and the American Medical Association. There is nothing more valid than information coming from those institutions.

          From the American Psychiatric Association web site:

          “The American Psychiatric Association opposes any psychiatric treatment, such as “reparative” or “conversion” therapy, which is based upon the assumption that homosexuality per se is a mental disorder, or based upon a prior assumption that the patient should change his/ her homosexual orientation.”

          When Miriam Grossman is able to comprehend and act in accordance with this understanding of the professional body concerned with her field of practice I will begin to take her seriously.
