Dr. Friedman is a prominent and well-respected twin expert who shares her passionate views and insights about twins and their emotional needs with twins and their families throughout the world. 

She has recently returned from speaking engagements in Istanbul and Madrid.  The fact that she is an identical twin and the mother of five, including fraternal twin sons, makes her ideally suited to this task. Her commitment to twin research and her treatment of twins of all ages demonstrate the breadth and depth of her skills and experience. 

She conducts ongoing groups for parents of twins and provides consultation on twin related matters such as school placements, developmental discrepancies, and behavioral issues. 

Her first book Emotionally Healthy Twins has received critical acclaim as a unique resource for understanding how twins develop and what parents can do to manage and understand twin specific challenges as twins mature.
