Description

From alienists to mesmerists to shrinks: the
fascinating story of psychiatry's demise and redemption in the field of
medicine, by the former president of the American Psychiatric Association.

In Shrinks,
Jeffrey Lieberman, MD, shares the story of psychiatry's origins and the
checkered history of useless or harmful treatments—including hydrotherapy, lobotomies,
and primal screaming—to its rehabilitation and transformation into an
evidence-based profession. A gripping and illuminating read, Shrinks reveals shocking case studies
and serves as an urgent call to arms to start treating mental illness as a
disease rather than a state of mind.

        Starred review from February 23, 2015
        Lieberman (co-author of Essentials of Schizophrenia), former president of the American Psychiatric Association, does a stellar job of recounting the history of his profession, warts and all, in a way that is easily accessible to lay readers and full of surprising facts. While people are "more likely to need services from psychiatry than any other medical specialty," the stigma attached to mental illness means that most sufferers "consciously avoid the very treatments now proven to relieve their symptoms." But the path from defining a mental illness to finding a consistently effective treatment for it is far from linear, and Lieberman pulls no punches while demonstrating how many psychiatrists, including Freud, made serious missteps that harmed patients and discredited the field in the eyes of the general public. He ends on an upbeat note, however, convincingly arguing that the shame of admitting to mental illness may become a thing of the past, because sufferers can be "diagnosed and treated very effectively," although he notes that the public still needs to be educated about recent advances.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Lieberman exposes the tangled and complicated history of psychiatry from its problematic origins and questionable practices to the scientifically sound field that has now emerged. At times, Graham Corrigan can sound a bit flat as narrator. When quoting people or expressing emotion, his tone lacks depth. This may be because some of the quotes lack clear context. In contrast, when narrating passages of information or even Lieberman's overarching concern about the public image of psychiatry, Corrigan provides strong emphasis and timing and as well as a nuanced navigation of complex passages.
