Medical coercive psychiatry contributes to the decline of civilization and the increase of human suffering
An excellent critique of the medical model of psychiatry from Dr Ronald Leifer.
He is an independent psychiatrist, who practises the alternative:
“Those who suffer mental, emotional, and spiritual pain the pain of life often suffer from frustrated yearnings to be loved and respected. The maturity, wisdom, warmth, respectfulness, and kindness of a helper can be therapeutic, not in a medical sense, but in a spiritual sense it can work miracles.”
If you’re concerned about psychiatry and it’s increasing use as a form of social control, you should try to read this. Dr Ronald Leifer argues, in the form of a defense of one of psychiatry’s own critics, that it’s running out of control: that what was seen as a matter of human character, and responses to the difficulties of life are now seen as medical conditions.
