A Democratic Mind: Psychology and Psychiatry with Fewer Meds and More Soul focuses on how an individual lives one’s life, and on the extent of harm that an individual can inflict on oneself or others. In this book, Charny provides a new lens for treating real people rather than offering treatments that alleviate symptoms.
