Description

David Rosenhan's famous experiment in 1973, where a group of pseudopatients were admitted to psychiatric hospitals after feigning auditory hallucinations, challenged the whole basis of psychiatric diagnosis and care. This program examines the context of the study, the pseudopatients'experience of being sane in insane places, how critics evaluated the study, and the continuing implications for the diagnosis and treatment of the mentally ill in contemporary society. Featuring interviews with experts, clear insights into the critical structures and history of psychiatry and an engagingly complete overview of the issues surrounding the experiment, this is a revealing look at psychiatry today.
