Therapy, counseling and life
Of all Dr. Breggin's books, The Heart of Being Helpful most directly addresses his approach to therapy. Sample chapters are included in this section. The final chapter of Brain-Disabling Treatments in Psychiatry describes the principles of effective therapy or counseling and the final chapter of Medication Madness describes "Principles of Life" for effective living. Most of Dr. Breggin's books have extensive discussions of non-drug approaches to children, adults and families. The articles here deal directly with therapy and life.

Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems. In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision. Methods for safely withdrawing from psychiatric drugs are discussed in Dr. Breggin's new book, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients, and Their Families.
