Dr Patricia O'Gorman
Dr Patricia O'Gorman Dr. O’Gorman was one of the first researchers in children of alcoholics in the 1970’s and created the Department of Prevention and Education for the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. She went on to direct the Division of Prevention for the National Institute for Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. She is a co-founder of the National Association for Children of Alcoholics. She is a veteran of numerous television appearances including Good Morning America, Today, and AM Sunday. Through the development of the concept of self-sabotaging, self-limiting “girly thoughts,” Dr. O’Gorman brings to the subject of women building resilience in the face of hardship, the same type of seminal thinking that helped create the Children of Alcoholics Movement. In her book she provides an in-depth self-evaluation assessment any woman can use to identify her personal strengths, weaknesses, and resilience style.
