Ty Colbert, PhD.
Broken Brains or Wounded Hearts is an exciting alternative to the often counterproductive approaches of conventional psychiatry and directly confronts the "disease model" of mental illness. Relying on the same data researchers use to conclude that mental illness has a biological basis, Dr. Colbert attempts to show that so-called "schizophrenia," "depression," "mania," etc., are not caused by genetic defects, chemical imbalances, or other physical defects in the brain. The book covers positive alternatives, and introduces a common-sense "emotional pain model" for extreme human distress.
