David Kirkpatrick, Author of Strong Women

In Praise of STRONG WOMEN, A Psychiatrist’s Memoir is a book that joyously celebrates the strong women that have influenced and benefited the author, David Kirkpatrick, during his life.

With insight from his practice, especially as a couple’s counselor, David offers well-earned advice to others living with, loving and losing strong women. He reflects on the experiences of his grandmother, mother and early teachers; of his third-grade sweetheart; of his first wife, Betsy, and their daughter, Mindy; of school friends and professional colleagues; of elderly aunts; and finally of Clair, his wife since 1997 and a psychologist herself. Woven between his memories and anecdotes is a discerning narrative about strong women in general and how to appreciate, enjoy and benefit from their special gifts.
