Putting Co-Pilot Andreas Lubitz On the Couch
March 31, 2015
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Today, Dr. Carole puts GermanWings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz on her couch and analyzes his psyche - from his cradle to his grave, and the grave of the plane-load of passengers he took down with him. What does "suicidal tendencies" really mean, and when should it stop a pilot from flying? What is a psychosomatic illness? Why would he kill himself if his girlfriend was going to have his baby? When should doctors break confidentiality and tell an employer about their patient's mental or physical health? Is it stereotyping or discriminating against the mentally ill to not allow a depressed pilot to fly? All these questions and more will be answered by your host, Dr.Carole, who has evaluated pilots in the course of her work as a psychiatric expert witness.
