Dear John,

I hope you haven't taken as gospel the material that Martin Jensen has placed on his website. His webpage is a self-promotional vehicle for his business interests. His website is nothing more than an informercial.

> 4. As you mentioned, I too hope the psychiatric community finds Jensen's methods valid. So far so good though. They have been endorsed by Menninger's Clinic in Kansas, which was rated as one of the top two psychiatric hospitals in the country. If you go there for treatment, you'll probably see the Jensen method in action.

The Menninger Clinic was rated 4th in the US News and World Report survey.

I hope the following quote from his website was not your sole source of "information" regarding the "laudable" position the Menninger Clinic has placed the treatment methods of Dr. Jensen.


Dr. Douglas Geenens - of Menninger Clinic (Kansas) Phone: (913)-338-1211

"I was so pleased with what I read. I would like to use it as a model for teaching psychopharmacology. I strongly believe in your method of assessment and treatment, as it is mine as well. Your book is quite timely, and the 'Jensen Method' will be embraced by the students I teach. Thank you for your contribution to our field."


I wrote a letter to the Menninger Clinic asking them if Martin Jensen's treatment methods were "endorsed" by them. I'll include it at the end of this post, which I think I'll cut short at this point. The only other question I have for now involves your following statement.

> And if you go to one of three medical schools in the country, you'll have to study it. It's one of the things they're teaching

Can you please clarify this sentence for me? As I read it, it seems as if you are stating that one out of every three medical schools in the United States teaches Dr. Jensen's treatment methods as part of their curriculum. Where did you get this information from?

Columbia Presbyterian (Columbia-Cornell University) was rated number two on the US News list. That's higher than the Menninger Clinic. One of their top clinicians and researchers, Patrick J. McGrath, never heard of Martin Jensen. At least that's what he told me.

I guess what you meant is that Martin Jensen's methods are taught at only three medical schools in the entire country.

Do you happen to know which ones? I may want to write some more letters

Subject: Menninger Clinic endorses the treatment methods of Martin Jensen ?


Thank you for contacting the Menninger website. We appreciate your thinking of us.

Dr. Geenens trained at Menninger but is not employed at Menninger.

Menninger does not endorse others' treatment methods.

Warm regards,
