News from America: renowned psychologist commits suicide, possibly re-opening recommendations

The Seattle Times reports that renowned US psychologist Stuart Greenberg has committed suicide, leading to the possible re-opening of his many custody evaluations.

He did so after it was alleged that an acquaintance had stumbled on a videotape of a wman being secretly filmed in Greenberg’s office toilet, leading to Greenberg’s arrest.

Greenberg was no ordinary psychologist. As well as undertaking many custody evaluations over the years and assisting the Seattle Archdiocese in dealing with sexual abuse cases,

“Greenberg had developed a national reputation, as well. His curriculum vitae, listing all his professional accomplishments, runs 19 pages.

“Among other things, he served as president of the American Board of Forensic Psychology in 2002-2003 and taught dozens of continuing-education courses across the country for fellow psychologists.

“He also trained a crop of would-be psychologists as a clinical assistant professor at the University of Washington, and before that at the University of Southern California and the University of Iowa.”
