“The Emperor’s New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth,” with Dr. Irving Kirsch at the ISEPP 2012 Conference

Irving Kirsch, Ph.D:  Dr. Kirsch is the premier researcher into the Placebo effect, antidepressants, and the originator of expectancy theory. Director of the program in placebo studies at Harvard Medical School, his new book, “The Emperor’s New Drugs: Exploding the Antidepressant Myth,” is receiving a great deal of press.  Dr. Kirsch makes an overwhelming case that what has been a cornerstone of psychiatric treatment is little more that a faulty consensus.
