Jerome S Blackman, MD, FIPA


As a Full Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at Eastern Virginia Medical School, I teach residents, psychology graduate students, and as a T&S Analyst with CFS, I have taught candidates in Washington, DC. From 2018-2021 , I was appointed Distinguished Professor of Mental Health at Shanxi Medical University in Taiyuan, China. I was also Adjunct Professor of Psychology at Virginia Wesleyan Univ in Norfolk, where I taught undergraduates.

I have a 1/2 time private practice in Virginia Beach, VA, and am accessible from anywhere in VA due to videoconferencing.

My three books, on diagnosis, defenses, and technique are all still in print through Routledge/amazon, and have been translated into several languages. Books 4 and 5 were co-authored with Dr. Kathleen Dring, and concern Sexual abusers and evaluation of children -- also through Routledge and available on amazon and other book sites.

Personally, I am a musician and tennis player. I am a widower. My son, Theodore, is the CTO of the Urbit Foundation.
