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.
