New Jersey - Highland Park Psychologist Marsha Kleinman

AG: Highland Park psychologist coached girl on sex abuse claims


The state Attorney General's Office has filed a complaint seeking to revoke the license of a Highland Park psychologist who has frequently served as an expert in criminal child abuse cases based on allegations she coached a 3-year-girl to make false claims of sexual abuse about her father.

In addition to the license revocation, Marsha Kleinman could face fines from the complaint filed Friday before the state Board of Psychological Examiners, a part of the Division of Consumer Affairs.

The accusations focus on Kleinman's treatment of a young girl between July 2003 and December 2004. She is accused of questioning the girl about possible sexual abuse by her father in "a suggestive, coercive and/or manipulative manner," according to the 16-page complaint.
Kleinman, 56, denies the charges.

"When people are advocates for children who are harmed in the home, they become a lightning rod, and there are people such as myself being targeted across the country by fathers' rights groups to shut down people like myself who protect children," Kleinman said today. "I expect all of this to be resolved."

Release July 31, 2007

Dear NJCCR Member Mothers, Fathers, Steparents, Grandparents, Friends and Family Advocates

The New Jersey State Attorney Generals office has officially charged
Psychologist Marsha Kleinmen of Middlesex County NJ, with multiple
counts of malpractice after many tormenting years of investigation
with the cooperation of one of our members .

Ms. Marsha Kleinmen is a court appointed Psychologist who has routinely
been awarded custody/evaluation cases throughout NJ. She has been
involved with the removal of children from their parents by utilizing methods that are considered highly unethical and abusive toward children.

Ms Kleinmen was charged with multiple counts of gross and / or repeated malpractice on behalf of a child of one of our members. Additionally, misleading the family court through not reporting all the facts that were reasonably available.

NJCCR is calling for the immediate suspension and permanent
revocation of her license to practice. Additionally, to limit Ms.
Kleinmen's ability to be around children unsupervised indefinitely.

This kind of abuse should not be taken lightly because this is the most severe kind of abuse when an apparent person of trust is given the power and control over a child's future and that person exploits the child's trust and dependency to substantiate her own bias conclusions.

Mental health explotation of a child will damage that child for life.

We expect criminal charges should follow this complaint and question why they have not already been filed.

This kind of behavior is not acceptable toward any child or parent and certainly our NJ child protection services should not risk any other child being exposed to Ms. Kleinmen until this case is adjudicated.

Unfortunately, during the years of investigation Ms, Kleinmen was allowed to
continue practicing unmonitored and therefore, there is no way at
this point, to determine how many other children and families she has adversely
effected or potentially abused.

It is the New Jersey Council for Children's Rights position that Ms.
Kleinmen be immediately suspended from seeing any child until this
case is adjudicated.

NJCCR views zero tolerance policy for child abuse and actual domestic violence applies to court appointed professionals as well.

For the safety and well being of all children and families, NJCCR urges careful discretion to be used by all parents when choosing to expose your children to a mental health professional..

If any members in NJ know of any person who currently or in the past
has been victim to unsubstantiated accusations of child abuse or the
like through child evaluation treatments contact the New Jersey Council for
Children's Rights immediately at NJCCR@yahoo.com

The New Jersey Council for Children's Rights believes that children
have the right to both parents regardless of their parents' marital
status and as such advocates for shared parenting and the protection
of children from predatory professionals that surround the divorce

This case is not about a child being sexually abused by a parent, it is about the misuse of psychological "experts" during divorce litigation and their ability to mislead the courts and effectually destroy the families potential for a positive post divorce environment with both parents involved in the childs life.

Unmonitored, court appointed custody "experts" have tremendous leverage when it comes to custody matters. The unbias view of court appointed Psychologist is essential to the proper workings of our current family court system. Left unmonitored and loosely regulated only puts our children at further risk of abuse.

The real question here is how many other cases has Ms. Kleinman performed in this fashion and what can we as citizens do to protect our children today and make sure that this does not happen again. Every one of Ms. Kleinmen's past evaluations must now be investigated and the cases opened for findings of potential fowl play.

New Jersey Council for Children's Rights is calling for our New Jersey.
State legislatures to establish a "Family safety Act" for the
protection of children from the predatory practice of child
psychology and oversight for psychologists that are used in family
court by independent family centric organizations such as NJCCR.

NJCCR is committed to working with our legislatures in establishing these safeguards to protect NJ families and children.

NJCCR is calling for funding so this problem can be fully investigated and documented across the family court system throughout the State with all court appointed professionals.

She spent a lot of years getting rich off the abuse she put on these kids not to mention the men. She prob had a beef w/men and used the kids as a way to get even. I must be empowering to be able to say "i am fighting for the safty of the kids" and not have anyone question her for rear of being labeled "against the kids". She should be sued by every guy who lost because of her. I wonder who'll she'll hide behind now??? She sould be left with noting just like the dads she lied about. This make me sick and very angry!

Just one more fine example how court appointed "professionals" get away with this crap. Are you sure she didn't come from the Clark County Wisconsin system?
