Two Shrinks Analyze Society and Psychiatry
April 24, 2018
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Today's show takes you behind closed doors, as two shrinks (psychiatrists) share the good, the bad and the ugly about mental health treatment today. Dr. Srini Pillay has been called a Renaissance man: author, coach, brain researcher, musician, provocateur, poet and psychiatrist. His latest book, entitled Tinker Dabble Doodle Try: Unlock the Power of the Unfocused Mind, presents a counterintuitive approach that helps people discover the benefits of techniques from dabbling to daydreaming. Current news headlines contain stories of mentally ill men: the Parkland school shooter, the Waffle House shooter, and the Toronto driver who rammed his vehicle into pedestrians. Each of these tragedies illuminates failures in the mental health system and provide fodder for Dr. Pillay and Dr. Carole to take a profound look into how psychiatry training and practice has gone astray.
