Paul Jay Fink
Dr Paul Jay Fink is a Bala Cynwyd, Philadelphia based psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, and President of The Leadership Council, a victimology oriented organisation which disseminates questionable literature on child sexual abuse. Educated at Temple University School Of Medicine, Philadelphia and with past experience as president of the American Psychiatric Association and at Philadelphia State Hospital and Albert Einstein Medical Centre, Philadelphia, Fink has sought to organise fellow professionals for the purpose of upholding child sexual abuse as a valid and economically viable theoretical construct. Fink was listed as the lead author of Misinformation Concerning Child Sexual Abuse and Adult Survivors, a book purporting to be an introductory text, but written almost entirely by Leadership Council associates, using material recycled from the Rind et al affair.
