Empathic Therapies

The Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy, Education and Living is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by Peter R. Breggin MD for professionals and non-professionals who want to raise ethical and scientific standards in psychology and psychiatry.  The board of directors, advisory council and membership include professionals in many fields spanning psychology, counseling, social work, nursing, psychiatry, and other medical specialties, neuroscience, education, religion, and law, as well as concerned advocates, families and laypersons.  Join the Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy,  Education & Living today! Be part of this  innovative and forward thinking field.

Psychiatric diagnoses, drugs, electroshock and other biological interventions are not the answer to human psychological and spiritual suffering.  The Center is devoted to examining the false theories and dangerous practices of biological psychiatry and to replacing them with more humane and caring approaches. For the latest news, research and growing scientific resources see our project.

Our conferences are among the most scientifically informed, innovative, and inspiring. For many professionals and advocates they are life-changing. Empathic Therapy Conference DVD sets are available here, with many informative, stimulating and inspiring hours of conference material.
