Jeanne Safer, PhD is a psychotherapist who has been in private practice for over forty-five years, and the author of seven acclaimed and thought-provoking books on neglected psychological issues—the “Taboo Topics” that everybody thinks about but nobody talks about publicly. Her special areas of expertise include siblings with difficult or dysfunctional brothers and sisters, women making choices about motherhood or who have chosen not to have children, adults struggling about whether to forgive people who have betrayed them and those coping with the death of a parent. She lectures on these and other unusual and compelling topics.
In June 2019, Dr. Safer’s newest book, I Love You, But I Hate Your Politics was published. Dr. Safer has appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Fox News “Kennedy,” C-Span and CNN in support of the book. Drawing from fifty interviews with every type of politically-mixed couple—from friends to relatives to lovers, as well as her own experiences as a die-hard liberal happily married to a stalwart conservative, I Love You, But I Hate Your Politics examines the political disagreements that are ravaging our personal relationships like never before. I Love You, But I Hate Your Politics is sure to educate and entertain anyone who has felt the strain of ideological differences in their personal life. Dr. Safer is a psychoanalyst/psychotherapist in practice for 45 years, and author of 7 books on taboo topics.
