I received an academic paper recently from Dr. Stephen Kent, sociologist from the University of Alberta and his research assistant, Terra Manca, published in 2012 about the conflict between Scientology and psychiatry. Published in the journal Mental Health, Religion and Culture, it was titled “A War Over Mental Health Professionalism: Scientology vs. Psychiatry.” This sparked a lot of thoughts on the war Scientology declared against psychiatry and in this podcast, I lay down some history and facts about all this.
