Upcoming Broadcasts

Psychotherapist Al Glaves and I will talk about how the medical model of mental illnesses was created and how it is fed by the American Public's acceptance of its harmful and erroneous beliefs. We will speak about the factors that motivate the various "states of being" (in essence, troubled and troubling modes of behavior, expressions of thought and emotional reactions) that are ultimately diagnosed as "mental illnesses and disorders." Finally we will discuss the ways the public can protect itself from the lies of the psychiatric model and Big Pharma and still successfully participate in the process of psychotherapy.
