Dr.Breggin is a psychiatrist in the mold of Thomas Szaz who has constantly challenged the status quo in medicine. Peter is concerned about the abuse and misuse of medications that have side effects worse than the illness. He is also upset at the sloppy way various testing and diagnosing procedures are used to determine if an illness exists and then the best means to treat it. We share a belief that a patient needs to be closely observed, listened to, and then his illness process discussed honestly with him so he can be a major part of his recovery.There are many questions about how a patient is diagnosed, how much the doctor really knows about him, what types of treatment are most effective dependent on individual differences, what combinations of treatments work, and problems of institutionalizing or not certain types of patients. You’ll get honest, clear answers from Dr.Breggin. Our previous interview on Toxic Psychiatry was interesting and helpful and this ill be as good.
