(Grand Rounds)

Title: Games Psychiatrists Play
SPEAKER: Jeffrey Schaler, PhD

Professor Jeffrey A. Schaler will describe three strategies used today by institutional as compared to contractual psychiatrists to circumvent Constitutional protections against depriving innocent citizens of due process of law. He will teach members of the audience how mental illness is a myth the way Thomas Szasz asserted it was a myth. And finally, he will show how mental illness is a form of legal fiction, the way black skin was once considered a form of legal fiction, drawing upon the work of Thomas Szasz and the legal scholar Lon Fuller.
