Welcome to the DrWillCupchik.com website.
With over 40 years experience assessing and treating usually honest, sometimes highly educated and/or financially well off persons who have jeopardised their personal reputations, social standing, and even their professional or working positions by acts of seeming bizarre, nonsensical shoplifting or other kinds of stealing, Dr. Cupchik has uncovered the fascinating reasons behind such illegal activities - how to help ensure that these individuals cease such self-sabotaging behaviors and how to help those who have to deal with such cases make more appropriate and less potentially damaging interactions.
Dr Will Cupchik has dealt with over 700 such cases over the past forty years and his presentations are replete with seemingly amazing yet true examples of such behaviors (camouflaged of course, to preserve confidentiality). Among the groups who can benefit from having Dr Will provide them with a talk that is both attention-grabbing and instructive are:
-- defense and prosecuting lawyers, and judges
-- police, probation and parole officers
-- loss prevention organizations
-- clinicians (psychologists, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, etc...)
-- corporate managers who wish to reduce shoplifting without alienating some of their best customers
... and other groups, such as academics, social scientists and others who have a keen interest in understanding why some individuals (who certainly 'know better' may risk so very much, by stealing, for what is often so very little in terms of monetary gain. [And no, they don't do it for the 'thrill', even if they themselves think so.]
If your group is interested in having Dr Will speak to your group, then by all means contact him directly by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning him at 416-928-2262.
Dr Cupchik provided a 2-hour workshop on 'ASSESSING AND TREATING USUALLY HONEST PEOPLE WHO STEAL AND HOW TO WRITE USEFUL COURT-DIRECTED REPORTS' at the Canadian Psychological Association Conference held in Vancouver on June 5, 2014.
