    I made this video with Jaakoo Seikkula in 2009. You may be interested in some of the other videos on my YouTube channel: PoetDox

    We were fortunate to be visited by Robert Whitaker here in CPH in November
    and the video of his lecture is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgS79hz1saI

    Robert Whitaker, author of “Anatomy of an Epidemic” and “Mad in America”,
    goes through the history of psychiatric medications and re-examines the research done on these drugs. His conclusions are disturbing to say the least.

    And Rufus May was also here to give a lecture about his work with
    people who hear voices. The videos for his lecture in 2 parts are here:

    Once a patient himself, psychologist Rufus May tells about his work using Mindfulness, a Buddhist meditation practice, to help his clients accept and transform the ‘voices’ they hear.
    This lecture was arranged by the Existential Psychology Forum at Copenhagen University.

    A year ago, Dorrit Cato Christiansen, Author of “Dear Luise –
    A Story of Power and Powerlessness in Denmark’s Psychiatric Care System”
    Gave a lecture here in town about here organisation – Death in Psychiatry”.
    The video is found here:

    Dorrit Cato tells how her daughter Luise died while committed to the locked ward of a Danish psychiatric hospital.
    The doctors attributed Luise’s death to ‘lifestyle illnesses’, but Dorrit acquired Luise’s medical journal and found out that Luise had 4 times the recommended dosage of psychiatric medication in her body at the time of her death.

    Daniel Mackler visited Copenhagen. His interview is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6G60443V6c
    Daniel Mackler worked as a therapist in New York City for 10 years.
    He discovered that so many of his clients had been or were being abused by psychiatry, that he gave up his work as a therapist, and now works full time, attempting to reform psychiatry.

    Hope you find these videos helpful.
