Doctors of Deception

$26.95

by Linda Andre

Doctors of Deception is the first history of electro-convulsive therapy (ECT), or shock treatment, to consider the controversial procedure in a social, legal, financial, medical, and moral context. Through the investigation of court records, medical research, FDA archives, and other primary sources, Linda Andre shows that claims of safety and efficacy made by doctors who promote and profit from ECT are not supported by science or evidence. She reveals how the shock industry and organized psychiatry abused public trust and waged a masterful, multi-decade public relations campaign to improve ECT's image, deceiving the media, the government, and the public about its risks while exploiting negative sterotypes of mental patients to silence survivors.
