Richard Werner has allot to say about electroshock
thanks to several years of paralegal work he did for a firm representing a man who’s entire autobiographical memory was erased by ECT. Werner has heavily researched electroshock; its use, studies, what doctors know and withhold regarding efficacy and risk and beautifully argues against the procedure in his paper, Shock Treatment: Efficacy, Memory Loss, and Brain Damage – Psychiatry’s Don’t Look, Don’t Tell Policy.
After reading this, I think anyone who has participated in deceiving the public and profited from the destruction of countless lives should lose their prestigious credentials, and spend the rest of their lives in a prison cell.
