Wednesday, March 31, 2010, at 12:00 Noon, I am hosting my show, The Advocates on WVOX- 1460 AM, or you can listen to the program’s live streaming at www.wvox.com. One can call the show at 914-636-0110 to reach us on the radio. My guest is Dr. Vivian Diller, co-author of Face It, What Women Really Feel as Their Looks Change.
Our subject will be her book, which addresses the implications of women coming to grips with their complicated feelings about their appearance as they age. Dr. Diller has created a psychological guide for women in this era of material, celebrity, the worship of youth, the race to slow the outward effects of aging and the race to extend life.
Vivian Diller, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist in private practice in New York City. Prior to becoming a therapist, Diller was a professional dancer with the Cincinnati Ballet Company and a model represented by Wilhelmina Models. As a model, she appeared in magazines such as Seventeen and Glamour, and in national print ads and television commercials.
Diller returned to school to earn a Ph.D. from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University, and a postdoctoral degree in psychoanalysis from NYU. She has served as a consultant to a major cosmetics company and has made numerous appearances on television discussing issues surrounding beauty and aging. Diller now works with individuals and couples in psychotherapy, with a special interest in helping young dancers, models, actors, and athletes transition to new careers.

Meanwhile, the mission of The Advocates is to bring to the public differing views on current “public policy” issues. “Public policy,” therefore, is what we as a nation legally and traditionally follow.
