“I want to help my colleagues and fellow therapists and counselors to bring out the best in themselves and to strive for the human, caring and empowering approaches that seek and inspire genuine and person-centered solutions for all those who feel the need to health from emotional wounds,” said Dr. Peter Breggin.
The Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy will carry forward Dr. Breggin’s effort of more than 40 years to reform psychiatry and offer extensive information on the damaging and dehumanizing effects of psychiatry, according to the Breggins.

“We have a special Founding Membership rate for those who will come and join us, Ginger Breggin said. “We have so many folks coming forward to be part of our activities as we seek fresh, human-centered solutions to age old emotional pains—I hope those learning about us now will become part of this exciting new movement!”
