Psychiatrist Peter R. Breggin, MD believes you can make a marvelous life. Great guests, callers, and conversations to inspire you.
Airs Wednesdays at 4pm ET / 1 Pacific
Mel Schwartz, a therapist, and for me a brilliant philosopher of science and psychology, brings Emergent Thinking to everything from how we envision the physical universe to how we can improve our lives and our marriages. Good listening; good stuff.
My guest Michael Cornwall PhD explores how to help people labeled schizophrenic with empathy and without resort to drugs. Michael has vast personal experience and profound understanding. A “must listen to” show for anyone concerned about madness, its nature, and its healing.

Kelly Bulkeley, PhD provides a window into our dreams and their relationship to empathy, personal growth and psychosis. Very enlightening. For my brief intro, I respond to the escape of three Cleveland women from sexual slavery and suggest a “National Day of Male Atonement.”
My guests are wife and husband Geri Carter and Tim Evans, both Adlerian psychologists and family therapists. After celebrating our great empathic therapies conference this past weekend, we spend most of the show talking about the importance of relationship and how to make a good marriage the center of our lives.
A startling interview! My guest Jeanne Stolzer, PhD discusses the harm of medicalizing childhood and the importance of empowering boys as well as girls. She then examines the need for attachment parenting, including children selecting for themselves how long to be breastfeed and how long to sleep in the “family bed.” One of the most interesting and controversial interviews on this show or on anyone else’s. You may disagree, but you will be challenged to defend or to rethink some of your basic ideas about childrearing.
My guest Thomas Fewer is a New Orleans counselor who has spoken out against the diagnosing and drugging of children. We talk about offering meaningful therapy for adults from an existential, spiritual, and depth perspective. May other therapists be inspired to speak out and to practice according to what they know is right.
Mike and Hope Bundrant represent, in my judgment, the real future of “mental health services.” Working outside the system, they focus on delivering genuine help. A lively sharing about self-sabotage and finding the freedom to love.
Lebron James, Tiger Woods and one-fifth of high school boys now labeled ADHD. Tie it all together with me and sports trainer Dr. Chris Stankovich in a wide-ranging discussion of sports, emotional crackups, broken bones, and life. Wow! And don’t forget our Empathic Therapy Conference April 26-28 in Syracuse (www.empathictherapy.org).
My guest Gayle Rozantine, PhD exemplies and lives what it means to be a therapist. Working with returning combat soldiers and their families, she describes the impact of war on everyone who is touched by it, and devotes herself to providing thoughtful, caring, and innovative services. Meet Gayle and learn about many frontier empathic therapies at our upcoming conference April 26-28, 2013 in Syracuse NY–www.empathictherapy.org.
BAM! The fed’s billion dollar Brain Activity Mapping project. Neuroscience at its best? Listen to my highly informed guest Jon Rappoport as we talk about psychiatry in the service of social control. The political left and right are turning to psychiatry as means for controlling violence. Listen, learn and then link to my latest blog, “Never Again!” http://www.naturalnews.com/039560_psychiatry_real_history_school_shootings.html
