Richard Grossman is a psychologist (ex-Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School staff and teacher), essayist, playwright and the creator of the popular and life-saving Voicelessness and Emotional Survival website. Featured three times in New England Psychologist, his work has appeared in The Boston Globe, Boston Magazine, Cosmopolitan (UK), CBS News and other magazines, books and web sites.
Dr. Grossman's new book "Voicelessness and Emotional Survival: Notes from the Therapy Underground" describes the surprising voicelessness he experienced in the high-status (e.g., Harvard Medical School) professional psychology/psychiatry world, what he learned from it, and the resultant therapy he developed in order to help other people deprived of voice free themselves from destructive relationships. The book is available on Amazon.
Selected from over 400 plays written by New England playwrights, Grossman's 10-minute comedy, "Reality Book Group" was top-billed in The Boston Globe and performed at the 2012 Boston Theater Marathon. His play, "Suicide Squeeze--an existential crisis at third base" was produced as part of a special "Director's Workshop" program by the Drew University Theater Department on September 26 and October 1, 2016. Grossman's latest 10-minute play/musical, "Gagtime!" will be performed at the 2019 Boston Theater Marathon by the Centastage production company on May 19th, 2019.
