Call (267)521-0167 to Speak with Dr. Bonnie Burstow and Associated Scholars about groundbreaking advances in antipsychiatry on February 17, 2017 from 5:30 - 7:30 PM Eastern - This show is coming in midst of the triumph of a scholarship, the relentless media backlash against the scholarship and two highly significant book launches. In October of 2016 Dr. Bonnie Burstow endowed a matching scholarship called “The Bonnie Burstow Scholarship in Antipsychiatry" at the University of Toronto. This is the first such scholarship anywhere in the world. Correspondingly, in December the first ever anthology of institutional investigations into psychiatry came out (Psychiatry Interrogated: An Institutional Ethnography Anthology). Launches of this book will be taking place imminently in Toronto (Feb. 24) and in New York (March 11). Meanwhile, the scholarship has led to many contributions as well as mounting attacks from the media. The significance of the moment will be discussed.
Guests include Dr. Bonnie Burstow, Lauren Spring, Efrat Gold, Sona Kazemi, Nicole Schott and potentially Simon Adam.
Dr. Bonnie Burstow is an Associate Professor at University of Toronto, the person who pioneered and endowed The Bonnie Burstow Scholarship in Antipsychiatry and the editor of the book. A devoted and long time antipsychiatry activist, a philosopher, and a prolific author, her publications include Psychiatry and the Business of Madness and Psychiatry Disrupted. http://bizomadness.blogspot.ca/
