Alert 114: The History of Psychiatry on Dr. Breggin’s Radio Show

Wednesday August 14, 2019 at 4 pm is the 4th appearance of journalist and scientist Patrick Hahn on The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour.  He is an extraordinary analyst of the history of psychiatry and its current manifestations.  His new book, Madness and Genetic Determinism has a much broader and more dramatic sweep than the title suggests.  From the moment I picked it up, I started learning, including chapters on the era of Moral Therapy, Fried Fromm-Reichmann and Chestnut Lodge, and Loren Mosher’s Soteria House.  The chapter on Trauma and Psychosis is stunning and makes the book worthwhile in itself.    If you miss the live show, watch it on the archives.
