Shrinks

Audiobook

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.
