9781900486552: Lunching with Lunatics: Adventures of a Maverick Psychologist

This entertaining, bizarre, funny, mystical poetic book reads like fiction but it is a true story. After a number of years practicing therapy Dr Seth Farber concludes that radical psychiatrist R.D. Laing was right: Schizophrenics are the avant-garde of a cultural revolution to liberate the imagination from the fetters of conformity. Farber's convictions on this topic are so strong that the reader is not really surprised when Farber falls in love with Carla, then Lily-both "schizophrenics," and mad as the mad hatter. This book is an affirmation of a vision of life beyond sanity and insanity as we know them.

He became disillusioned with the mental health system and frustrated over its resistance to reform. In 1987 Dr Farber met several leaders in the "mental patients liberation movement" and co-founded the Network Against Coercive Psychiatry.
