Dori Middleman, MD, a graduate of Bryn Mawr College and Temple University School of Medicine, has been in private practice as a board-certified psychiatrist since 1992, when she completed training at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Clinic and Hahnemann University Psychiatric Residency Program. She has been a faculty member of the Pennsylvania Gestalt Center since 1988 and also has lectured at many area educational institutions. Dori spends part of her week seeing children at the Health Annex of the Family Practice and Counseling Network. She is also a consulting psychiatrist for the Mary Howard Health Center, which serves shelter residents and the homeless. Many weekends of the year, she collaborates with Mariah Fenton Gladis and Mark Putnam as co-facilitators of Gestalt psychotherapy workshops, having trained at the PA Gestalt Center herself. Mariah's book, Tales of a Wounded Healer, describes not only Mariah's amazing life but also the theory of Gestalt psychotherapy and the philosophy Dori practices in her life and work. Having completed her child psychiatry fellowship at the Philadelphia Child Guidance Center, Dori maintains her commitment to family and systems work in the healing process through her involvement with John Brendler and Building Bridges in Media.
