What's the Matter with Batman

Psychoanalysis of superheros

Quote:
Batman dresses in costume, spends a good part of his wealth to support the lifestyle of his bat-alter ego, and puts his life on the line nightly. There must be something wrong with him, right? This question is that heart of "What's the Matter With Batman?" Clinical psychologist and Abnormal Psychology author Robin Rosenberg delves into the mind of Batman. She examines his problems, "issues," and possible symptoms to determine whether he suffers from any of a variety of psychiatric disorders such as depression, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and others. Dr. Rosenberg also addresses why he trains minors to be sidekicks in his dangerous profession, as well as his disappointing love-life. Dr. Rosenberg is uniquely qualified to examine Batman in this light; she writes college-level psychology textbooks and writes extensively about psychology and superheroes. She is series editor of the Superhero series with Oxford University Press and has been featured discussing psychology and superheroes in various media including The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, the Financial Times, National Public Radio, Pacific Standard magazine, the Boston Phoenix and the documentary "Superheroes."

Robin S. Rosenberg is board certified in clinical psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology and a fellow of the American Academy of Clinical Psychology. Dr. Rosenberg is co-author of the college textbooks Introducing Psychology and Abnormal Psychology. She is series editor of the Superheroes series with Oxford University Press, and editor of "The Psychology of Superheroes" and "The Psychology of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo." Dr. Rosenberg enjoys using stories of superheroes and other popular culture figures to illustrate psychological principles. She is a blogger for Huffington Post and Psychology Today, and has been featured discussing psychology and superheroes in various media including The Discovery Channel, The History Channel, the Financial Times, National Public Radio, Pacific Standard magazine, the Boston Phoenix and the documentary "Superheroes." She received her B.A. in psychology from New York University and her M.A. and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Maryland, College Park. She is President-Elect of the Santa Clara County Psychological Association.
