Dr. Daniel Carlat: UNHINGED: THE TROUBLE WITH PSYCHIATRY

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Wednesday, August 3, 2011 - 11:00am

Has psychiatry lost its way? DR. DANIEL CARLAT, on the faculty of the Tufts Medical School, believes psychiatry has become too much about prescribing meds and less about sitting and carefully listening to the patient. Many doctors are over prescribing drugs and giving meds to patients who might be better off merely discussing their problems.  Furthermore, the drug companies have far too much influence on which drugs doctors give to their patients. Tune in tonight for an honest assessment of the current state of psychiatry from a doctor in the field. Dr. Carlat’s revealing book is titled UNHINGED: THE TROUBLE WITH PSYCHIATRY-A DOCTOR’S REVELATIONS ABOUT A PROFESSION IN CRISIS.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
