From the back cover:
Thomas Szasz died at 92 on September 8, 2012. With his death, many of us, not enough, are left with deep concern about his legacy and the continuing influence of his ideas. Here, following a biographical sketch, I discuss some of the myriad ways his ideas have directly or indirectly influenced my ongoing work as a psychologist. I hope that my experience will have a small positive effect in keeping alive and in play the profoundly important ideas of this great man.
John Breeding, PhD is a psychologist, counselor, educator, and activist providing services and resources for individuals, couples, families and groups on personal growth, human transformation, parenting, working with young people, and liberation from psychiatric oppression.

Inspiration of the Day
“People often say that this or that person has not yet found himself.
But the self is not something one finds,
it is something one creates.”

So Now What?
If you are unhappy, disappointed and frustrated with your life and desperately trying to find a way to change it from the outside you will be destined to stay stuck.
If you’re waiting for happiness and success to show up at your door then you’re wasting your time. It’s not going to happen.
If you’re waiting for a life of wonderfulness to descend upon you like a fine mist from Heaven then you’re going to be very disappointed.
The life you desire and dream of is possible but you are going to have to create it yourself.
Before your outside world can change you first need to get into the mental and emotional state of the person you want to become.
How would you think, feel and act if you had the life you really wanted...

Seth Farber, PhD Author of: The Spiritual Gift of Madness: The Failure of Psychiatry and the Rise of the Mad Pride Movement (Innedr Traditions, 2012) Foreword by Kate Millett
“Farber critically considers the role of madness in culture and sees it as a positive force for change rather than a disease needing treatment. At the same time he does not play down the difficulties encountered by those experiencing such ‘initiations,’ but believes we need to cherish them and appreciate their visionary role in a world gone insane.” (Robert Black, New Dawn, January 2013)

First, Empathic Therapy is a big tent. Divergent views, cordially expressed and discussed, are welcome. However, the goal of the Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy, Education and Living is to study and to encourage genuine human engagement as the centerpiece of all good helping relationships. If you are only in partial agreement, come along. You will find the participants happy to engage and even to embrace differences of opinion, provided they do not oppress those who seek help.Second, genuine empathy, as well as good science, lead to the conclusion that damaging the brain with drugs, electroshock and lobotomy is simply wrong, and should be actively opposed. Unfortunately, the leadership of the various divergent schools and critiques have rarely if ever dared stand up to organized psychiatry by criticizing the use of these brain-damaging treatments. Jung, Adler, Rogers, and nearly all the existential and humanistic leadership have always taken a "live and let live" approach to the most abusive psychiatric practices. Szasz was the first to clearly and meritoriously criticize involuntary treatment, but he and many of his followers have taken a hands-off attitude toward the actual physical abuses perpetrated by psychiatry.Third, authoritarian viewpoints embedded in psychiatry, and in much of contemporary psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, have no place in empathic therapy. Diagnosing people with pejorative labels elevates the therapist to a superior position while diminishing those who seek help.He has many other points he will discuss.I will use some and apply them to teaching and parenting.
