In episode 3 of Mad Wisdom I talk to Eric Maisel PHD, therapist, coach and author of 'The Future of Mental Health' and 'Humane Healing' (out on 19 October). In this powerful and sometimes shocking conversation, Eric talks about:
- The relentless power of the DSM and the collusion in the current mental health system
- The terrifying news that mental 'illnesses' may soon be treated BEFORE they are diagnosed - based on prediction and family history
- How we should drop the idea of the 'psychologist and 'psychiatrist' and instead move towards a 'human experience specialist' - someone who understands all of human life.
My thanks to Eric for his honesty and depth of insight.
