Dr. Bob Johnson is a consultant psychiatrist (retired), who trained in both the UK and the USA. In 1967, he refused to give Electric Shock Therapy, which he regarded as akin to the ducking stool and about as effective — whereupon his further psychiatric career was blocked. He spent two decades as a family doctor, and then five years as a consultant psychiatrist in Parkhurst Prison. His book on "verbal physiotherapy" is How Verbal Physiotherapy Works: Using Social Delight to Defeat Social Harm, for All.
