Thank you Lisa and Will for articulating the effects of oppression/social control. Paranoia inducing treatment.
Thank you Lisa and Will for articulating the effects of oppression/social control. Paranoia inducing treatment…what an important concept in addressing the reality that being coerced adds to the distress, and it’s not all engendered from internal biochemical imbalances/brain disease.
This was an incredibly informative program. Lisa Darbyshire is so articulate and a brilliant young woman. Thank you both, -janice
