Holidays in Place and in Placelessness/Multi-visions 2019: a creative writing workshop!

Holidays in Place and in Placelessness/Multi-visions 2019: a creative writing workshop is for Writers, Artists, and anyone looking forward to, dreading, or thinking on the complex and urgent issues the holidays bring up.

I will be doing this two-hour creative writing workshop November 2nd, 3-5pm, at the California Building in Northeast Minneapolis, room 201, as part of a series of events for the wonderful organization, Art to Change the World.

Workshop description:
Whether we celebrate publicly, or in a hidden way; in our homes or in a foreign land; joyously, or under the weight of family dysfunction or cultural limitations; with a sense of safety and belonging, or as targets under threat—this workshop uses creative writing craft and practice to bring forward—through writing and testimony—“multi-visions” of the holidays, and a way to approach each other at the borders between us.

Cracking the Mind-Body Cipher

Dr. Niall (Jock) McLaren is an Australian psychiatrist who uses philosophical analysis to show that modern psychiatry has no scientific basis. This startling conclusion dovetails neatly with the growing evidence that psychiatric drug treatment is crude and damaging. Needless to say, this message is not popular with mainstream psychiatrists. However, in this book, he shows how the principles of information processing give a formal theory of mind that generates a model of mental disorder as a psychological phenomenon.

This book shows...

  • How, for ideological reasons, modern philosophy misses the point of the duality of mind and body;
  • How to resolve the mind-body problem using well-defined principles;
  • Why the entire DSM project is doomed to fail;
  • Why the ideas of Thomas Szasz have failed to influence psychiatry;
  • Where we go from here.
"The Mind Body Problem Explained is a thoughtful, insightful and provocative exploration of the nature of the human mind, and sets forth a powerful argument for rethinking the medical model of mental disorders. The current paradigm of psychiatric care has failed us, and Niall McLaren's book will stir readers to think of new possibilities."



--Robert B. Whitaker, author Mad in America: Bad Science, Bad Medicine, and the Enduring Mistreatment of the Mentally Ill"It is impossible to do justice to this ambitious, erudite, and intrepid attempt to dictate to psychiatry a new, 'scientifically-correct' model theory. The author offers a devastating critique of the shortcomings and pretensions of psychiatry, not least its all-pervasive, jargon-camouflaged nescience."
--Sam Vaknin, PhD, author Malignant Self Love: Narcissism Revisited
