On June 26, 2014 from 8 - 10 PM Eastern, tune in to the Talk with Tenney show for a lively conversation shining light on psychiatry and efforts to resist against it, in Canada and across the world. Dr. Bonnie Burstow's work over the years on exposing the abuse and torture people -- particularly women --have endured at the hands of psychiatry is expansive, and dates back decades. Her work on exposing electroshock as a crime against humanity needs attention. You can call in (267) 521 - 0167 to discuss the fight against psychiatry, the battle in academia, being silenced and obstructed, and strategic activism. Different efforts Dr. Burstow has been involved in including Psychiatry Disrupted, Psychiatry Interrogated, and Psychiatry and the Business of Madness will be at hand.

Dr. Bonnie Burstow is a faculty member at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at University of Toronto and a very long time antipsychiatry activist (approximately 35 years) .  She is also a feminist therapist, a prison abolitionist, a left wing anarchist, and a prolific author. Examples of organizations and events which she has chaired over the years include: the Ontario Coalition Against Electroshock, Resistance Against Psychiatry, Coalition Against Psychiatric Assault, and the first PsychOut Conference.  Examples of her publications are  Radical Feminist Therapy: Working in the Context of Violence, Shrink Resistant (co-edited with Don Weitz); A Rose By Any Other Name: Naming and the Battle Against Psychiatry (in Mad Matters) and the much anticipated, soon to be released anthology of which she is first editor, Psychiatry Disrupted.  (McGill/Queen's University Press).
