My conversation with Chuck Ruby, author and psychologist, will cover a range of subjects including the invention of the myth of mental illness, what constitutes abnormal behavior, morality and the myth of mental illness, social control and mental illness, strategies for escaping emotional pain, and existential emotional pain. We will finish our discussion by suggesting changes needed to be made by the mental health industry and the responsibilty of those seeking help for emotional pain.
