(transcript at http://www.math.missouri.edu/~rich/psych/breggin.txt)
In this interview, he deals with the dangers of antidepressant drugs, ritalin, electro shock, the profession of psychiatry, as well as the profession’s role in the Holocaust.
Peter Breggin is a doctor, teacher, therapist and author of many books including Toxic Psychiatry, The Antidepressant Fact Book, Your Drug May Be Your Problem, and Talking Back to Ritalin: What Doctors Aren’t Telling You About Stimulants for Children.
Dr. Breggin argues that society is becoming increasingly dependent on prescription drugs to solve psychological and social problems, and that this move towards a biomedical model of treatment is a dangerous trend, disabling and damaging the brains of children and adults.
