Will Hall interviews Gary Greenberg about "The Book of Woe"
Book of Woe - Gary Greenberg
Why is the DSM-V, also known as the "Psychiatric Bible," such a controversial publication? What are the political, ethical, economic, and social implications of psychiatry's tendency to label and diagnose every facet of human experience as a mental disorder? Today's guest is Gary Greenberg, practicing psychotherapist and author of several books including Manufacturing Depression, and most recently, The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry, who has also written for many publications including Harper's, the New Yorker, Wired, Discover, Rolling Stone, and Mother Jones.
