About Dr. Paul Lavin

Dr. Paul Lavin received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland in 1971. He has been a licensed psychologist for nearly forty years and has authored numerous professional books and articles on the problems of troubled youth. He returned to the practice of the Catholic Faith according to the traditional rites of the Church in the late nineties, upon beholding the devastation to the Church caused by various post-conciliar novelties.

For the past several years, Dr. Lavin has concentrated on authoring books and articles focusing on Traditional Catholicism and the many societal issues confronting the true Church and the laity who are trying to remain loyal to it. He is author, with Robert Lavin, of The Iron Man of China, a biography of the Maryknoll missionary, Father Joseph Lavin, Dr. Lavin's uncle.
