Problem children or problem adults?
Changing Motives and Methods
Benjamin C. Gruenberg, Ph.D.
BENJAMIN C. GRUENBERG is one of our foremost pioneers in the field of sex education. He first became interested in this subject when, as a young biology teacher in the New York City high schools, he found himself teaching about sex and reproduction contrary to the school curriculum, which upheld the traditional taboos.
Dr. Gruenberg is well known as an author, editor and lecturer. Among his many books are High Schools and Sex Education, Parents and Sex Education, Biology and Human Life, The Story of Evolution, and Science and the Public Mind. He has lectured at the New School for Social Research, the College of the City of New York, the University of Colorado and the Pennsylvania School of Social Work, and has been a consultant for the U.S. Public Health Service and the Office of Education, numerous other government agencies and educational associations, and Director of the American Association for Medical Progress. He has also done research in such subjects as comparative psychology, plant physiology, medical economics, vocational guidance, and adult education. Dr. Gruenberg and his wife, the child expert Sidonie Gruenberg, recently celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary. They have four children and ten grandchildren.
