  • WERU Special – Interview with Dr. Robert Gallon 6/30/16

    Producer/Host: Linda Washburn
    Engineer: John Greenman

    Program Topic: Diagnosing Mental Disorders

    Review of book: Gallon, R. (2105). “Nine Dimensions of Madness: Redefining Mental Health”, Berkeley, CA: North Atlantic Books

    Key Discussion Points:
    Book text paraphrased:
    a) currently objective indicators are not used to diagnose mental disorders
    b) Gallon proposes “nine dimensions of dysfunction “ replacing the current disease model
    c) “pills” are not the answer for most seeking help: The origins of most mental problems are interactions of biological, psychological and social factors and people can be advised and
    empowered to resolve mental dysfunction with a high degree of success.

    Author Dr. Robert L. Gallon (Bar Harbor/ Bangor), clinical and forensic psychiatrist, teacher, and author (btw also plays tuba in the BSO)
