Mark Schwartz and Lori Galperin are two mental health therapists
currently involved in a high profile case in MO who are trying to
move their operation to CA. They have a history of engaging in a
bizarre therapy that results in false beliefs of trauma and multiple personalities. They are attempting to open a center in Pacific Grove called "Castlewood West." One has succeeded in getting a license in CA and the other is attempting to do the same.

Their documented history of this therapy extends back over a decade
when they headed a unit for Masters and Johnson, the sex therapists.That unit was involved in lawsuit where a sum was paid but the disclosure of details remained secret. Here is an article from that time detailing the exact same bizarre allegations for which they are being sued for today.

The past chair of the ethics committee for the International
Psychoanalytic Association is calling for a full investigation of
these folks. The video in this link provides a great amont of detail.

I have a friend interviewing for a position at Castlewood West. I'm concerned about the information that I'm finding about Mark Schwartz, and would welcome any personal and/or additional information anyone can give me about his operation. Thanks.
