7 of 17 people found the following review helpful By César Tort on December 10, 2004
Format: Paperback
I am an author that writes in Spanish and specializes in child abuse and the "model of trauma" of mental disorders, an expression coined by psychiatrist Colin Ross. The importance of doctor Ross' new book on schizophrenia can be understood in the following personal anecdotes.

About a year ago an article authored by me was rejected for publication in "Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry" (EHPP), originally created by psychiatrist Peter Breggin: the only scholarly journal I know that specializes in debunking biological psychiatry. I made a formal complaint to Breggin himself, one of the leading professional activists against criminal psychiatry in the last decades. His wife replied stating simply that he does not work there any more (though he is still the director emeritus of the institute that publishes EHPP).

The reason for the rejection of my article was simple: the new editor's aversion of my view that abusive parents can drive their children mad. I found it very hard to believe that the old views on child abuse and psychosis advanced by psychiatrists Theodore Lidz, Ronald Laing and Silvano Arieti could not find a place in the journal that Breggin created. But the fact is that his antipsychiatry journal even ignores the views of the authors that publish on the same subject in the 21st century: John Modrow, Alice Miller and, more technically, Colin Ross.

I also presented my complaint to David Cohen, a former editor of EHPP and co-author with Breggin of the stupendous book "Your drug may be your problem: how and why to stop taking psychiatric medications". The editor wrote back to Cohen saying that he "did not reject Tort's paper because of bias against trauma", and Cohen believed him.
