Intellectual Debate: “Psychiatry vs Anti-Psychiatry”
Apparantly I have started an “intellectual debate”, with a posting on mentalnurse:
Wow, intellectual debate on Mental Nurse. Somewhat inevitable as I haven`t been around to lower the tone.
I think we are in desperate need of more debate as to the aetiology of mental illness. After all, if we`re not sure about the problem then we`ll obviously struggle with the solution. As I see it, the trouble with TIB`s branch of anti-psychiatry is that it has an almost perverse tendency to drive others into the arms of the medical model, in diametric oppposition to its objective. That`s disappointing for those, like me, who would like to see psychiatry take a bit of a kicking.”
