Keith Ablow, M.D., is a New York Times bestselling author, Fox News Psychiatry Contibutor, contributing editor for Good Housekeeping and Men’s Fitness, and repeat Oprah guest. He has earned the title, “America’s Psychiatrist” by helping millions of people take control of their lives by understanding the patterns they’ve developed that are firmly rooted in the past. His transformative strategies are the founding principles for and are incisively presented in Living the Truth: Transform Your Life Through the Power of Insight and Honesty.

As a practicing psychiatrist, author and television personality, Dr. Ablow has treated thousands of patients in both public and private practice throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He has documented, over the course of more than fifteen years, the unmistakable power of personal truth to transform human lives in a broad spectrum of environments. He believes we hold up shields to protect ourselves from the painful truths that, when faced honestly, turn into powerful insights and clear strategies for growth and success. “We all have ‘buried treasure’, and it is just under the surface,” Dr. Ablow asserts. "Once we gather the courage to unearth it, we are rewarded immeasurably for the effort."

The response to Dr. Ablow’s message has been dramatic and continues to grow. He has spoken publicly for hospitals, corporations, professional organizations, private colleges and public schools. His essays on human emotion and behavior have been published by The Annals of Internal Medicine,
The New York Times, USA Today, Discover, U.S. News and World Report, Good Housekeeping (where he is a contributing editor), Cosmopolitan and many other national publications. In addition to his appearances on Oprah, he has appeared frequently on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, The O’Reilly Factor with Bill O’Reilly, Tyra, Montel, Maury and a host of other television programs.

Dr. Ablow graduated from Brown University and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and is on the faculty of New England Medical Center in Boston. In addition to his best-selling work of non-fiction,
Inside the Mind of Scott Peterson, he is the author of six bestselling crime novels, all of which feature a forensic psychiatrist who solves mysteries beyond the grasp of other investigators. Whatever the forum, Dr. Ablow’s message is always the same: You can’t outdistance your past. The truth always wins. And you can be a far more powerful person the moment you embrace it.

Most Requested Topics:

  • Living the Truth - Transform Your Life Through the Power of Insight and Honesty: Dr. Ablow shares and expands upon the core messages and inspiring stories in his highly anticipated book Living the Truth, giving listeners the courage and the tools to reexamine critical chapters of their life stories and uncover powerful life lessons they have kept hidden behind shields of denial. We all tell ourselves lies; we all have buried truths. Most of us fear revealing them even to ourselves. So we leave them buried and do whatever it takes to keep them there, sometimes forever. We distract ourselves with overeating, channel surfing, compulsive shopping, chaotic relationships, gambling, alcohol, drugs. But Dr. Ablow can empower listeners to unravel the web of denial and fantasy obscuring the path to a richer, more honest and truly happier existence.
  • Living the Truth in the Workplace - Transform Your Company Through the Power of Insight and Honesty: Companies have histories, just like people. They are living entities striving for self-actualization. But meeting their goals depends in large measure on understanding the lessons of the company's past whether learned in a single transaction, one year or over a century. And the problem is that many of the most powerful lessons are the most painful ones to confront. They're the ones buried in the most complicated, stressful, least profitable chapters of the company's life story. Dr. Ablow's strategies will help companies uncover the "buried treasure" in their corporate culture, history and habits and give them the true keys to write the next spectacular chapters in their life stories.
  • Living the Truth as a Leader - How to Use Reality to Achieve Any Goal: Leaders distinguish themselves by confronting adversity, learning critical lessons from the past (whether of a small company, corporate culture or a nation) and charting brilliant courses into the future. The problem is that many of the most powerful lessons are the ones no one wants to look at because they're the ones that could only have been learned when individuals or organizations fell painfully short of their goals. Dr. Ablow gives leaders the tools to unearth this buried treasure and teach others to using the Pain-to-Power Principle to utterly transform their visions of themselves, their companies and their range of possibilities.
