Medicaid Fraud Case Goes to Trial


Ex rel Watson v. King-Vassel, part of PsychRights’ Medicaid Fraud Initiative Against Psychiatric Drugging of Children & Youth, goes to pre-trial conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin this Tuesday, December 3rd. “This may end up being where the case is decided for all practical purposes,” according to attorney Jim Gottstein; “I know it is way short notice, but if you can come to support us (Milwaukee Federal Courthouse,  517 East Wisconsin Avenue, at 8:30 a.m.) in trying to stop the massive psychiatric drugging of children that would be great.”

Inspired by Open Dialogue, he works as part of a team and consults with couples and families that have members identified as patients. His work in residential treatment — largely with severely traumatized and/or "psychotic" clients — led to an appreciation of the power and beauty of systemic philosophy and practice, as the alternative to the prevailing focus on individual pathology. A former film-maker, he has undergraduate and master's degrees in psychology from Harvard University, as well as an MFT degree from the Council for Relationships in Philadelphia. He is a doctoral candidate with the Taos Institute and the Free University of Brussels. You can reach him at [email protected].


  1. I think someone should sue NAMI “national alliance on mental illness” for promoting the use of neuroleptics in children and youth. See “Risperidone for Adolescent Aggression” Medical Focus, Winter 1996

    They are still pushing nueroleptics off label today ! “Antipsychotic medications and mood stabilizers have been proven to be effective in treating oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder.”
