Mad in America: Peter Breggin and Michael Cornwall – Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children
In this new MIA Radio podcast and interview, Peter Breggin and I are interviewed by Miranda Spencer about the psychiatric abuse of children, who are being harmed by psychiatric drugs, labels/diagnoses, ECT, and by the new FDA-approved electrical brain device that is placed on the foreheads of children all night long, who are diagnosed with ADHD – the Monarch eTNS. We offer suggestions for compassionate, trauma-informed, humanistic alternatives to relieve the emotional distress of children and teens. We also discuss the initiative we recently launched called SPAC! (Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children), a grassroots human rights project.
New video about ways to compassionately be present with someone in emotional pain

There’s a brief experiential exercise at the end you could try, that helps caregivers be more compassionately present with people in extreme states and other emotional pain. The video is from the recent RD Laing gathering at Esalen Institute.

Mad in America: Letting Negative Projective Identifications Come, and Letting Them Go
My new article looks at how some of the stress you may be feeling these days, could be coming from the powerful emotional projections of politicians and others that are aimed at causing the public to feel as afraid and vulnerable as those politicians and others are actually feeling inside themselves.
Please note: I will be away and unavailable for email contact or consultation until July 15, 2023. Thank you and best wishes, Michael
