DR MARY PIPHER, a clinical psychologist and an adjunct clinical professor at the University of Nebraska, received her BA in Cultural Anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley in 1969 and her PhD from the University of Nebraska in 1977. Her work combines her training in both the fields of psychology and anthropology, with a special emphasis on how American culture affects the mental health of its people. Pipher is the author of Hunger Pains, Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls, The Shelter of Each Other: Rebuilding Our Families and Another Country: Navigating the Emotional Terrain of Our Elders, and Letters to a Young Therapist. Three of her books — Reviving Ophelia, The Shelter of Each Other, and Another Country — were New York Times best sellers. Reviving Ophelia was #1 for 27 weeks and on the New York Times list for 154 weeks. In addition to her books, she has written articles for Time Magazine, The Family Therapy Networker, USA Weekend, The Journal of Family Life, and many other publications. She has appeared on The Today Show, 20/20, The Charlie Rose Show, The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and National Public Radio's Fresh Air. She lives in Lincoln.
