Podcast: Anti-psychiatry vs Psychiatry

Contentious, but I love it.

As a nutcase myself, I will never be able to brandish a flag against treatment or say stuff that will make change happen. As I feel there is much, much to debate.

Debate: wonderful. Let's always hear both sides - always.

I felt this is a good podcast, from good speakers and hey face a room of psychiatrists without being there!!( I jest)

Do have a listen if you have time.

I'm very thankful that there's always "the other side" to things - and so well put.

Happy listening in the safe knowledge, that discussion at least still exists.

ummmmmmmmm

right very interesting
1 to deny the genetic componant of schizophrenia is truly laughable my grandad had scitzophrenia, my dad has it and i have it.
2 can you descibe a patient eating his own excrement "hypersane"
3 it was all your mothers fault?????? i know this NOT to be the case why mothers?? i believe this to be subtle sexism the fathers arent mentioned.
laing was full of shit this IS a brain disease and no amount of hanging out with a patient is going to cure them. i believe his theory has and would ifit as implimented completely DESTROY FAMILY REALTIONSHIPS.

That first speaker sounded like a real cow.....i would hate to be under her care

I think what the guy said at the very end about psychiatry being the only profession that had to live with the fact that they often do more harm then good about sums things up.

man....whatta mess apothesis

gonna post it on my facebook

society don't give a damn until they're facing it themselves. Can't blame em really as our lives are never simple.

I've had a pint - so ima ok for the next few hours....

just got text message from friend, who said I was being "manic" last night.

I'm fed up with every nuance in my brain as being labled an illness. Freedom to feel...is my option. I'm not too distressed, its all manageable....err i think.

keep smiling (even if its a lie) (hey ho)

my best

To my understanding; powerful emotions & depth of feeling are a sign of maturity & a strong spirit - such things are not pathological; as orthodox psychiatry would have us all believe. :rolleyes:

omg:related to Psychiatry of Death

Just going through, the documentary.

Didn't think aversion therapy using electrodes was legal on kids, in 2009. Just did a bit of googleing on the Judge Rotenburg Center - whatta bunch of w*****.

Poor kids, stupid parents. What to say eh?
