9781499234558: Treat Me Right: Help For Behavioral Addictions Including Theft/Fraud Crimes (Women's Theft Addiction)

Treat Me Right: Dr. Brady’s Bad Actor Series Continues People are mesmerized with” the rich and famous” especially when they take a fall or two. Winona Ryder, as a case in point, stole lots of stuff, but did she receive the necessary diagnosis and treatment she needed? Dr. Brady has analyzed many celebrity theft cases and concludes that, “most of these people never got the necessary help they needed, thus the bad news—they may reoffend.” Often the treatment of a behavioral, addictive disorder like stealing proves ineffective. He presents the cases of six psychologically troubled theft-addicts who he personally treated using a variety of therapies. These cases are, at times, sad yet Dr. Brady skillfully blends in his unique humor to make this new and appealing contribution to the field of addiction a fulfilling read for anyone interested in addiction, why rich people steal or just wants to read about interesting criminal cases. Importantly, Dr. Brady adds to mounting evidence by criminologists that certain categories of theft can be interpreted as a behavioral addiction (like hoarding, sexual fixation, gambling, excessive exercising, compulsive-shopping, or uncontrolled Internet focus) and not caused by some kind of unproven brain dysregulation or chemical imbalance requiring drugs to fix. Treat Me Right is the fourth book in Dr. Brady’s acclaimed, true crime, Bad Actors Series now available on Amazon. com or on his website—johncbrady.com. His first three books addressed why wealthy women steal and then sadly get hooked on psychiatric drugs indiscriminately prescribed by psychiatrists. This book’s goal is to help anyone who finds him— herself caught in the trap of taking things that don’t belong to them. Dr. Brady advances the premise that, “sometimes individuals commit general theft crimes such as shoplifting, corporate fraud, embezzlement, forgery and even bank robbery for reasons they don’t immediately recognize, or maybe never will.” After providing treatment to more than one hundred theft offenders, Dr. Brady developed his clinical opinion that, “lots of them were simply clueless why they jumped into the deep end of the theft pool and struggled for survival.” In Treat Me Right, he helps his criminal patients search for the buried reasons they have gone off the deep end became addicted to stealing. Dr. Brady uses different types of therapies to treat different types of offenders. For instance, treatment methods like hypnotherapy, cognitive behavior therapy, exposure therapy, motivational interviewing, rational-emotive and existential therapy, while fundamentally differing in their orientations, can nevertheless be matched with specific theft addicts. Dr. Brady selected six of his fascinating criminal cases, for inclusion in his book, that are provocative and informative. The case of Shari Nelson, for example, a beautiful woman and successful hospital administrator who seemingly had everything to live for chronically stole expensive clothes and fine jewelry gruesomely harmed herself via exsanguination, by injecting a needle into her forearm and withdrawing large amounts of her own blood! Clearly, it was suicide on the installment plan. Shari feared public exposure as a thief more than a slow, painful, suicidal death! Her case is joined by five additional stories of disenfranchised thieves who were all charged with criminal theft and who, after counseling, showed improvement. Their almost unbelievable, individual backgrounds, psychological pathologies, heartbreaks, set- backs, psychological traumas, and lifestyles are highly divergent. Dr. Brady’s book is packed with useful information, captivating vignettes and not cluttered with useless medical terms or obscure psychobabble perhaps proving that his treatments are, in fact, “right.”

About the Author:

Dr. John C. Brady, II is a California licensed forensic psychologist and criminologist with twenty-five years experience treating criminal clients. This is the fourth book in his Bad Actor Book Series. Dr. Brady has written extensively about why people turn to crime. His unique theory centers on the theory that some deviants become addicted to the thrills associated with crime. In a sense, he sees certain offenders as engaging in crime as a method to modify their mood states--a typical characteristic of an addicted person. Dr. Brady's forensic interests range from rich women including celebrities who steal to men who engage in multi-million dollar fraud. His next book addresses three white-collar offenders including John Spano who, in Dr. Brady's opinion, became addicted to theft when he fraudulently bought the New York Islanders hockey team. Spano, according to Dr. Brady's interpretation, had "no clue" why he stole $80 million resulting in a federal prison term. Dr. Brady has an active forensic practice in San Jose, California where he is often called upon as an expert witness. One of his current interests is why some defendants confess to crimes they didn't commit-the "false confession syndrome."
