Dr. Pipher

Dr. Pipher is a clinical psychologist and best-selling author with over twenty years of counseling experience. She writes Reviving Ophelia from her own personal perspective and clearly defines the cultural changes that she feels are most needed. She describes her own adolescence growing up in a small community in the 1950s and '60s. Dr. Pipher is frustrated that she cannot draw upon her own childhood memories to help her young adolescent patients, but she feels that they are now living in a different world.

She contrasts these recollections with the hobbies of her modern patients. Dr. Pipher recalls her first experience watching a television program at age six. Her patients now have access to countless cable channels.
