Humanizing Psychiatry: The Biocognitive Modelby Niall McLaren M.D.
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
Assailed from many directions, under constant attack for its reliance on "a drug for all problems" and increasingly unable to attract bright new trainees, the specialty is showing every sign of terminal decline. The reason is simple: modern psychiatry has no formal model of mental disorder to guide its daily practice, teaching and research. Unfortunately, the orthodox psychiatrists who control this most conservative profession are utterly antagonistic to criticism. This book argues that their faith is entirely misplaced and contributing to the destruction of an essential part of civilized life, the fair and equitable treatment of people with mental disorders. The author offers a rational model of mental disorder which will have revolutionary consequences for psychiatry--and the mentally-afflicted.
