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.
I’ll be serving as director for a new activism project called “Stop the Psychiatric Abuse of Children” or SPAC, as described in Peter Breggin’s article at Mad in America.
Peter and I will be publicly launching the SPAC project on his Progressive Radio Network (PRN.FM) program on Wednesday, June 12, 2019, at 4:00 PM EST. Please join us on the air with your calls (888-874-4888).
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.
In my new blog post here, I share that to feel empathy doesn’t ensure that caring and compassion are present too, and that some of the most highly empathic people I’ve ever known have been con artists, manipulative politicians, psychiatric dogma-bound mental health professionals, career criminals, and seductive and exploitative spiritual teachers and gurus.
This article was published today in The New York Times. It’s a long overdue report by national media on the inherent risks of taking antidepressants that aren’t told to people when they are prescribed.
Hi All. Here’s my new article on the “anti-psychotic” drug Abilify, that can now automatically send signals to your doctor, family members and the courts, to show them when you comply and swallow the pill.
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.”
My new article here explores the often taboo topic of
why parents may give potentially harmful psych meds to their children.
I’ll be discussing it with Dr. Peter Breggin on his radio program this Wednesday at 4 pm EST at http://www.prn.fm
