San Diego Mayor to Begin Therapy Amid Sexual Harassment Claims



Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) -- San Diego's embattled mayor begins therapy this week as he remains under fire for alleged sexual harassment.  

Ten women now claim they were sexually harassed by Mayor Bob Filner.  A recall effort is underway, and one lawsuit has been filed.

Despite the allegations, Filner has said he is not resigning. He begins his two weeks of full-time counseling on Monday.

Sex therapist Dr. Kristin Zeising says in the first hours of treatment, doctors "will assess [Filner's] personality, whether or not he has something like a personality disorder like narcissism."

But she believes two weeks is not enough to cure a problem.

"After two weeks, we'd have to look at how much change has occurred and how much more change needs to happen," Zeising says.

Filner claims he will take care of city matters in the evenings after counseling.
