‘Psychology Is’ Podcast: The Scientific Emptiness of Psychiatry, With Dr. David Cohen

3
2807

From Psychology Is: “‘Psychiatry’s most fundamental characteristic is its ignorance,’ wrote Raymond Dolan in his recent review of psychiatric literature. In this episode, UCLA professor Dr. David Cohen shares an excerpt from this study and others. He also describes the big picture, bringing to light the many elements that constitute the modern day mental health so-called care. In sum, psychiatry is scientifically empty. The field is comprised of psychiatrists, who primarily act as drug prescribers, who justify their practices on the basis of ‘silly theories that are continually refuted,’ as Dr. Cohen puts it.

  1. Great interview, thank you gentlemen.

    Dr. David Cohen, as one who teaches social workers, please educate them with Robert Whitaker’s findings that the ADHD drugs and antidepressants can create the “bipolar” symptoms. Especially given the fact that such misdiagnoses, are no longer considered misdiagnoses, according to the DSM5.

    And, please also educate them with my psychopharmacological findings, that the antipsychotics can create the “positive symptoms of schizophrenia,” via anticholinergic toxidrome. And the antipsychotics / neuroleptics can also create the “negative symptoms of schizophrenia,” via neuroleptic induced deficit syndrome.

  2. Dr. Cohen says, “…the whole country is kind of turning into a whole psychiatric institution…”

    Thank you for telling it like it is, Dr. Cohen.

    And Dr. Cohen asks, “How is the priest gonna start criticizing the priesthood?”

    And therein lies the crux of the problem —
