The Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy, Education and Living is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by Peter R. Breggin MD for professionals and non-professionals who want to raise ethical and scientific standards in psychology and psychiatry. The board of directors, advisory council and membership include professionals in many fields spanning psychology, counseling, social work, nursing, psychiatry, and other medical specialties, neuroscience, education, religion, and law, as well as concerned advocates and laypersons. Join the Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy, Education & Living today! Be part of this innovative and forward thinking field. Psychiatric diagnoses, drugs, electroshock and other biological interventions are not the answer to human psychological and spiritual suffering.

Warning! Most psychiatric drugs can cause withdrawal reactions, sometimes including life-threatening emotional and physical withdrawal problems. In short, it is not only dangerous to start taking psychiatric drugs, it can also be dangerous to stop them. Withdrawal from psychiatric drugs should be done carefully under experienced clinical supervision. Methods for safely withdrawing from psychiatric drugs are discussed in Dr. Breggin's new book, Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal: A Guide for Prescribers, Therapists, Patients, and Their Families.
