The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 04.12.18

I open this show with a manifesto:  That the actions of people helping people can and should lie outside the conventional designations of psychiatrist, psychologist, or even counselor and therapist, and these activities should not be subjected to government control and licensing.  I believe that humans and humanity have survived throughout our evolution with helping relationships, including helping each other with all kinds and …

Leah Ashe PhD and I “sit at the kitchen table” so-to-speak and have a lovely conversation about the knowable and the unknowable in life, starting with our relationship to food, and to then to the animals that most of us eat, and then to each other and the unknowable and knowable we find in and with each other.  I enjoyed this …

Andrew Thibault’s new film Speed Demons, available on Amazon.com, is a major contribution to understanding the murder and mayhem perpetrated under the influence of psychiatric drugs.  It is beautifully filmed, profoundly empathic, and very informative.  Although focused on prescribed amphetamines, we learn about the overall cover up of psychiatric drug-induced violence.  In our wide-ranging discussion today, what struck me most poignantly was how Andrew …
