Minnesota Psychiatry in the Mid-to-Late Twentieth Century Oral History Project: Interview with Galen Stahle, M.D.
Description Dr. Stahle, a private-pilot psychiatrist, came to Minnesota psychiatry via a different path than many others psychiatrists. Iowa-born and trained through medical school, he decided on psychiatry well before medical school. He went to Miami, Florida for a training program with a strong psychoanalytic philosophy and stayed there in practice for a time. He came to Minnesota in 1978, and has continued to practice here. Dr. Stahle's practice evolved to a focus on anxiety disorders, treated with a cognitive-behavioral therapy approach. He describes this evolution, and his other activities, including flying to consult at a rural community in western Minnesota, and his leadership in organized psychiatry. Dr. Stahle's most unique contribution has been his volunteer work with the Hispanic community here in Minnesota, but especially his frequent volunteer trips to a violence-torn area of Peru which is also described in detail.
