Here’s my intense discussion from yesterday with friend Peter Breggin, about the frightening new at-home medical device for treating so-called ADHD, that sends electricity directly into children’s brains while they sleep. Peter said, “I conclude that we will be conducting ‘mini-lobotomies’ on epidemic proportions on our children under the cover of Psychiatry.” Please listen to this no-holds barred conversation where we raise the alarm about this horrible, human rights abuse of children that now has the approval of the FDA and the APA/Psychiatry.
I’ll be the guest on Dr. Peter Breggin’s Radio program on Wednesday June 13th, from 4:00-5:00 PM, Eastern time. We’ll be discussing my new article that’s posted here on my website titled, “Merciful Love Can Help Relieve the Emotional Suffering of Extreme States.”
Peter and I had a wonderful, free-wheeling discussion on June 28, 2017, about helpful ways to be there for people in extreme states. We also talked about what I called “the medical curse” that is given by psychiatrists when they label and treat people via the psychiatric disease model dogma. I also shared about the upcoming special edition of the Journal of Humanistic Psychology that I’m editing on extreme states, that has original articles from writers like Peter Breggin, John Read, Yana Jacobs, Natalie Tobert, Bob Nikkel, Michael Eigen, Will Hall, Dina Tyler, Louisa Putnam, Kermit Cole, Ron Unger, Cardum Harmon, Michael Guy Thompson, David Lukoff, Chuck Knapp, Ilya Parizhsky, and myself. The special journal edition will be available online in a couple of weeks. It will be titled, “Humanistic Perspectives on Understanding and Responding to Extreme States.”
Tomorrow, Wednesday, December 30 at 1:00 PM PST, Peter Breggin and I will talk about those major and minor turning points in life, when overcoming our ambivalence or fear can send us down new paths that have deeper meaning and purpose – that have more soul.
