Reviews for Doctors who Rape by Pauline Trumpi
word, the idea of rape suggests bad men lurking in dark alleys to attack
unsuspecting strangers. Writing through clenched teeth, Pauline Trumpi tells
us how she was drugged, raped, and inseminated by a trusted psychiatrist
who evaded significant punishment through the complicity of the organizations
set up to protect us from bad people. As part of her own recovery, Ms. Trumpi
has assembled a wide range of information about doctors who violate both
their patients and the Hippocratic Oath that has been the basic contract
for our safety in their hands. What started as her humiliation at the hands
of a doctor became first a victim's rage and now a survivor's manual of use
to us all."

"Because I do therapy mainly with victims of
crime, this book is a much needed, valuable tool. . . . Positive changes
occur in our legal system due to efforts such as Ms. Trumpi's. It takes
courage to write in such a frank, honest manner."
-Nancy Gamble, Ph.D.
Co-author of The Second Rape and No, Go, and Tell
"Some people tell the truth about the profession,
others tell their own stories, and still others give information, but rarely
does anyone combine everything in one book. This is that rare book-honest,
useful, and like a fist in the face of those who abuse their power. But
it is not bitter or vicious-just uncompromisingly true. This is the kind
of book we need. In every field. I salute Pauline Trumpi."

Lie About Love
". . . the most comprehensive study of its kind
on this most difficult and troubling issue. All of the bases have been covered
. . . supported by meticulous research. . . . the analyzing of actual cases
makes this book a powerful tool and I recommend it as a 'must read' for anyone
required to work within the criminal or civil justice systems of today."

". . . Ms. Trumpi's book is telling us the truth
about assault, helping to retire the myth that strangers are the only dangerous
