The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour – 03.15.17

A great hour with British child psychiatrist Sami Timimi. We focus mostly on children but since all of us were once children, everything is also relevant to adult life. We examine the hazards of calling “unhappiness” or “despair” by a medical term such as “depression” and then prescribing drugs to children. Ultimately we address being a human being, and what children and adults alike really need–trusting, loving relationships. You will learn and be inspired by listening to Dr. Timimi.
