Join us for a very special summer Rethinking Psychiatry meeting. We are excited to have Ted Chabasinski as our guest speaker!
Ted Chabasinski has been active in the psychiatric survivors movement since 1971. He was lead organizer of the 1982 campaign that successfully persuaded Berkeley voters to ban shock treatment in the city. Ted is known as a visionary, and an articulate, tough, and often witty speaker.
Now a patients’ rights lawyer, Ted was taken from his parents when he was 6-years old, experimented on with a course of electric shock treatments, and then sent to a state hospital for the rest of his childhood. He writes about the power of psychiatry and how it is abused, especially against children.
