Thomas Szasz on Psychiatry and Religion
 
42:16
Thomas Szasz is a psychiatrist and author well known for his criticism of the modern psychiatry movement. He has consistently sought to apply classical liberal principles (such as bodily and mental self ownership) to social science and also explored the consequences of mandatory institutionalization of persons the state deemed to be insane. In his book, The Myth of Mental Illness (1960), Szasz claims that psychiatry ultimately robs people of the responsibility of being moral agents by obscuring the difference between socially unacceptable behavior and disease. In this lecture, given at the National Libertarian Party's Nominating Convention in 1983, Szasz compares the influence of psychiatry on the public with the influence of religion on the public (usually with the backing of the respective king or government body) during the Middle Ages. Szasz points out that the state's tendency to use science as a justification for trampling the rights of individuals today is much like the state's tendency to use religious justifications to trample the rights of individuals in days past. Szasz once wrote in 1974: "Since theocracy is the rule of God or its priests, and democracy the rule of the people or of the majority, pharmacracy is therefore the rule of medicine or of doctors."

Thomas Szasz: The Right to Take Drugs
 
29:30
Thomas Szasz is a psychiatrist and author well known for his criticism of the modern psychiatry movement. He has consistently sought to apply classical liberal principles (such as bodily and mental self ownership) to social science and also explored the consequences of mandatory institutionalization of persons the state deemed to be insane. Szasz passed away on September 8, 2012. In this lecture given at Harvard Law school in 1992, Szasz borrows from his then newly-released book Our Right to Drugs: The Case for a Free Market, speaking on the medical monopolization of the drug industry backed by the power of the state. He says: "It isn't just heroin and marijuana that are illegal -- EVERY drug in America that's any good is illegal, because if you have to go to a doctor to get a prescription to get a drug, ladies and gentlemen, it's illegal. The medical people have forgotten this because we all get drugs like people in Russia (then the Soviet Union) have to get permission to emigrate."

Mann ki baat: Ep # 16: Myths of Mental Illness
 
23:06
As a body of illnesses, perhaps no other form of illness is as misunderstood and as mystical in the minds of people as are Mental Illnesses. While physical illnesses are believed to have a tangible physical reason behind them, most people tend to ascribe supernatural causes to mental illnesses. Myths abound when one talks about mental illnesses. Phases of the moon and black magic are commonly blamed for what could be a chemical problem in the normal functioning of the brain. As with the cause, the understanding and treatment for mental illnesses is also usually biased because of lack of proper awareness regarding mental illnesses. A lot many people suffering from mental illnesses actually get worse because precious time is wasted in their apparent treatment by faith healers. Another common misconception regarding mental illnesses is that they can be cured once the person suffering form them is married off. It will only increase their distress at having to deal with the stresses of the change unless the spouse and family is aware and supportive. This episode has sought to clear some of the myths surrounding mental illnesses and distress to create better understanding in people regarding them. It tells us that any person, regardless of age, class, gender and intelligence can suffer from a mental illness at any point in their lives. It also clears the myth that mental illnesses disable the person permanently, telling us that mental illnesses are treatable and early identification, proper and adequate treatment and support can lead to complete functional recovery from mental problems.

What is ANTI-PSYCHIATRY? What does ANTI-PSYCHIATRY mean? ANTI-PSYCHIATRY meaning - ANTI-PSYCHIATRY definition - ANTI-PSYCHIATRY explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Anti-psychiatry is the view that psychiatric treatments are often more damaging than helpful to patients, and a movement opposing such treatments for almost two centuries. It considers psychiatry a coercive instrument of oppression due to an unequal power relationship between doctor and patient, and a highly subjective diagnostic process. Anti-psychiatry originates in an objection to what some view as dangerous treatments. Examples include electroconvulsive therapy, insulin shock therapy, and brain lobotomy. An immediate concern is the significant increase in prescribing psychiatric drugs for children. There were also concerns about mental health institutions. All modern societies permit involuntary treatment or involuntary commitment of mental patients. In the 1960s, there were many challenges to psychoanalysis and mainstream psychiatry, where the very basis of psychiatric practice was characterized as repressive and controlling. Psychiatrists involved in this challenge included Jacques Lacan, Thomas Szasz, Giorgio Antonucci, R. D. Laing, Franco Basaglia, Theodore Lidz, Silvano Arieti, and David Cooper. Others involved were Michel Foucault and Erving Goffman. Cooper coined the term "anti-psychiatry" in 1967, and wrote the book Psychiatry and Anti-psychiatry in 1971. Thomas Szasz introduced the definition of mental illness as a myth in the book The Myth of Mental Illness (1961), Giorgio Antonucci introduced the definition of psychiatry as a prejudice in the book I pregiudizi e la conoscenza critica alla psichiatria (1986). Contemporary issues of anti-psychiatry include freedom versus coercion, mind versus brain, nature versus nurture, personal liberty and the right to be different. Some ex-patient groups have become anti-psychiatric, often referring to themselves as "survivors" rather than patients.

Dr. Thomas Szasz Tribute- Psychiatrist, Acclaimed Author & CCHR Co-Founder
 
04:40
Dr. Thomas Szasz was a Professor of Psychiatry Emeritus at the State University of New York, Adjunct Scholar at the Cato Institute and a Lifetime Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association whose long list of educational accomplishments, credentials, honors, biographical listings and awards speak for themselves. Considered by many scholars and academics to be psychiatry's most authoritative critic, Szasz has authored more than 35 books on the subject, and has been acknowledged by many as a staunch defender of liberty and human rights. He co-founded the Citizens Commission on Human Rights in 1969 as the world's first mental health watchdog organization. He is the recipient of dozens of awards and honorary titles and has won the admiration of many scholars and defenders of liberty. "Dr. Szasz was one of those rare individuals who could not be silent when liberty was threatened." — Congressman Ron Paul "There are few of us who have devoted our entire lives to fighting man's inhumanity to man. Thomas Szasz was one of those few and now joins the rest of those freedom fighters who belong to history." — Dr. Keith Hoeller, Editor, Existential Psychology & Psychiatry "One of the smartest and most thorough defenders of autonomy and liberty of our time." — Brian Doherty, Senior Editor, Reason Magazine "Throughout his long life, he did not simply fight the good fight, he fought a truly magnificent fight." — Professor Richard E. Vatz, Towson University

Questioning religiosity, psychiatry and sanity -- writings of Dr. Szasz and Dr. Breggin
 
20:33
This video was made in response to the claims circling the internet that religious persons are "mentally ill," calling attention to the writings of two psychiatrists critical of their own field.: Dr. Thomas Szasz and Dr. Peter Breggin. Here I also tell of my own limited experience dealing with the psychiatric profession and its drugs (namely, Zoloft, Zyban/Wellbutrin, and Lexapro). ----------------------------- Obituary of Dr. Thomas Szasz: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/12/health/dr-thomas-szasz-psychiatrist-who-led-movement-against-his-field-dies-at-92.html?_r=0 Excerpts transcribed from Dr. Szasz' book "Manufacture of Madness: A Comparative Study of the Inquisition and the Mental Health Movement": http://waywardblogging.com/?p=1067 http://waywardblogging.com/?p=1076 The other book mentioned by him that I recently completed it titled "The Myth of Psychotherapy" and is available in audio format. List of writings by Dr. Szasz: http://www.szasz.com/publist.html ----------------------------- Info on Dr. Peter Breggin: http://www.breggin.com/ Videos by Dr. Breggin: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2JF03GFbLu5aI6lXaMzYeA An excerpt from Dr. Breggin's 1991 book "Toxic Psychiatry": http://waywardblogging.com/?p=3373 I do feel it deserves to be noted that Dr. Breggin's chapter on women and feminism in relation to the mental health field displays some problematic biases. Perhaps I'll get around to blogging about that portion in the future. ----------------------------- In Dr. Szasz' 1978 book "The Myth of Psychotherapy" is where I'm referencing his talk of Sigmund Freud's Jewish ancestry and ongoing concern despite popular claims of Freud being secular and an atheist. A 2007 NYT article touches on this a little by pointing to Freud's last book "Moses and Monotheism": http://www.nytimes.com/2007/09/09/magazine/09wwln-lede-t.html ----------------------------- Dr. Carl Jung's obituary where the differences between his approach to psychoanalysis and that of Freud are touched on as well: http://www.nytimes.com/learning/general/onthisday/bday/0726.html

There is no test nor scientific proof that mental illness exists.

"True Biblical Counselling and Schizophrenia"
 
53:09
1. Thomas Szazs, a psychologist or psychiatrist, wrote a book "The Myth of Mental Illness". 2. Wm. Glasser in his book "Reality Therapy" gives details of THREE separate institutions in which schizophrenics were cured without drugs, by simply training them to take responsibility for their actions. The success rates were from 80-100%. 3. Jay Adams, a Christian counsellor in America, has written some 40 books on counselling. He also contends that "mental illnesses" do not exist. I doubt if these books have ever been mentioned in your training. 4. Eysenk researched the success rate of counselling. Psychoanalysis = 44% Psychotherapy = 64% This sounds reasonable until he quotes NO treatment whatsoever = 72%. So much for secular treatments! 5. I have co-authored a book entitled "Breakdowns are good for you". My co-author is a retired Anglican Minister. He qualified as a doctor and spent three years working in psychiatric hospitals and then went into the ministry. He realised that those who claimed that they were mentally ill were simply sinners. You might like to read some of the comments from people that I have helped with counselling or they have read our book. Click on http;//www.mbowden.info/comments.htm

The Mental illness Fraud, Label Jars Not People
 
04:07
The mental illness fraud by psychiatry. There is no scientific proof nor test that proves that mental illness exists. Sue was given l5 different bogus mental disorders from the DSM IV book used by psychiatrists when she was in and out of psychiatric hospitals in Ontario Canada from 1972-90. Most psychiatrists routinely use the DSM IV book (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) to diagnose their patients. Sue discusses the DSM IV book with all its bogus classifications, by picking everyday problems and classifying them as mental illnesses/disorders i.e. Nightmare Disorder, Nicotene Dependence Disorder, Stuttering Disorder, Mathematical Disorder, Bereavement Disorder, and the list goes on. The DSM IV book written by The American Pyschiatric Association (APA) lists over 200 so called mental disorders and list codes with every classification in order to get paid by a 3rd party i.e. insurance companies, and health ministries etc. Books to read exposing that mental illness does not exist: "They Say You're Crazy: how the world's most powerful psychiatrists decide who's normal" - by Paula J.

Szasz Thomas MD on ADHD - ADD in children
 
01:31
Can the child hire another doctor for a second opinion, a different explanation in his/her favor? No. "Another lamentable new development, is a claim that millions of children suffer from a mental illness called Attention deficit hyperactive disorder and that Ritalin administered to children often against the parents will ( of course it's always against the child's will, but nobody is asking the children) and the administration of Ritalin is a treatment for it. Well if you believe that, you will believe anything. No behaviour or misbehaviour is a disease or can be a disease, that's not what diseases are!... Diseases are malfunctions of the human body, of the heart, the liver , the kidney, the brain. So it doesn't matter how a child behaves, there is nothing to examine. If he is sick then there must be some objective science to it. Which can be diagnosed by physicians and objective tests. As soon as you go to a doctor, they take a lot of blood. They take Xrays. They don't want to hear how you behave.(laughter) Labeling a child as "mentally ill" is stigmatization, it is not diagnosis. Giving a child a psychiatric drug is poisoning them, not treatment." Audio only of Dr Thomas Szasz the author of The Myth of Mental Illness.

I talk with Jeffery Schaler about his new book, Thomas Szasz: The Man and His Ideas (http://amzn.to/2wvEHyO).

Thomas Szasz on Socialism in Health Care
 
01:28:16
The health care debate is fundamentally broken, argues the great psychiatry skeptic Thomas Szasz, because it assumes a flawed premise. Namely, that "diseases require treatment, so the thing to do is to avoid diseases so you don't need treatment." Szasz ties this to the problem of socialism in health care. Because of the way we think about disease, we have a health care system that removes control from individuals and gives it to state-enabled doctors and insurance companies. In psychology, for example, "diseases are no longer defined by pathologists but are defined essentially by a political process." This has lead to, among other things, more expensive health care. Szasz offers seven reasons why, many having to do with the way we think about disease, how it should be treated, and the relationship between citizens and medicine.
