Warning: Psychiatry can be Hazardous to Your Mental Health

12.00

Since the mid-sixties Dr Glasser has made it clear that he does not believe in mental illness. Instead he explains psychotic behaviour as the product of our creativity in an attempt to satisfy our basic needs. “Without pathology in your brain,” writes Glasser, “by every standard of good medical practice, it is wrong to diagnose what you are complaining about or experiencing as an illness.” Glasser’s idea of all behaviour as being chosen rather than being controlled by chemicals (such as Seroxat [Paxil], Prozac, Melleril, Ritalin) is very much at the heart of his Choice Theory. In this book he writes about how certain psychiatric practices could cause harm and he goes on to offer an alternative approach to mental well-being.  The foreword is by Dr. Terry Lynch, author of “Beyond Prozac” and “The Depression Delusion”.
