“Positive Thinking and the Name Game”

The Institute for Art and Ideas hosts a debate between psychiatrist David Healy, psychiatrist Dinesh Bhugra, and philosopher Havi Carel on the proposition that “When we are ill we want a name for our illness … Could we be healthier if we were less attached to naming illness? Can we improve our health by improving our mind, or is this an old lie peddled by quacks?”
