Miriam, Thank you for your excellent deconstruction of the mystification used by psychiatry. You. Point out that collaborative psychiatry is an oxymoron because of the power imbalance. As a person with lived experience who practices as a psychiatrist I practice emotional CPR and Open Dialogue to reduce this power imbalance, but it still exists. I acknowledge the imbalance but work with the person to realize their dreams with at times are to come off meds.
