Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners
Complaint Screening Committee
17 December 2008
Re: RFI No. 08-23, John Trezise, Ph.D.
What this Board needs to know is that Dr. John Trezise has a history and a pattern of targeting subordinates and coworkers. Rather than use his position and skills as a supervising psychologist to shore others up, Dr. Trezise has targeted others unfairly in a sick manner. Besides me I personally know three other mental health professionals he has targeted and harassed.
My concern is Trezise has a history and, although I have no professional opinion, it appears somewhat pathological. I remember Dr. Trezise commenting to me candidly and often about his “paranoia.” His words not mine. Even during our last discussion in April 2006 on site at Special Management Unit II at the Arizona State Prison Complex—Eyman, he mocked himself and his own paranoia: “You know, my paranoia.”
This Board stands apprised and needs to look into the sadistic nature of Dr. Trezise’s interactions in targeting his subordinate co-workers. Rather than shore up & build up other employees, Dr. Trezise has a history of targeting others unfairly for termination.
Since I stopped working for Dr. Trezise, I am certain he has targeted other employees. Moreover, I am confident he will continue his pattern of targeting others rather than attempting to groom them and help them develop. In fact, right now he is probably working upon another subordinate.
Lastly, Dr. Trezise knows exactly how he got his position as head of the Sex Offender Treatment Program at Florence—West, the private penitentiary. More importantly, Dr. Trezise knows exactly why Dr. Arnold was fired (getting caught in the act of having sex with her inmate patient by nursing staff), yet Trezise has failed to make the requisite report due this Board.
