My guest Andrew Thibault is the film maker who made Speed Demons, one of the best documentaries ever on how psychiatric drugs drove a real-life highly intelligent, kind and caring young man into a violent killer.  Unlike most of these films, Andrew gives us a sympathetic close-up, personal look into the life of the medication victim who then becomes a psychotic perpetrator.  Andrew Thibault is also an independent researcher into the relationship between psychiatric drugs and violence, and has made himself into a fountain of interesting and exciting information.  If you have any interest in these topics, you are guaranteed to learn from this episode of the Dr. Peter Breggin Hour.

Between Terry Lynch MD and me, I think we have a hundred years of experience working with patients or clients, and that is what our show is about.  Terry, who lives and works in Ireland, began as family physician and became disillusioned with the psychiatric approach being taken to people with emotional suffering.  He bypassed psychiatry completely-an act of wisdom and courage-and became a psychotherapist.  He is a leader in the field of how to help people and I always find it useful and inspiring to talk with him.  Join Terry and me for a discussion that begins with a focus on love and moves on to broader issues in psychology and psychiatry, with many practical suggestions about how to help oneself and others live a more fulfilling life.  I benefitted and I think you will, too.

This was such a great show, I had to reassure my wonderful audience that every single caller was spontaneous and as surprising to me as it was to them.  This was Open Mic Wednesday, which occurs every last Wednesday of the month.  Topics covered were successful psychiatric drug withdrawals, building relationships when you feel emotionally unstable and lacking in confidence, handling anger, and brain nutrition.  For me, it was an spontaneously delightful and informative hour.   The Dr. Peter Breggin Hour is every Wednesday 4-5 pm NY Time.  Calls can be taken during the live hour itself at 888 874 4888.  The archives are on www.breggin.com<http://www.breggin.com>.
