Breggin is one of many well-known as generally "anti-psychiatry," which provides for a viewpoint students should be aware of. However, this one piece of information is not terribly credible. If the author has credentials (which he does not provide here) to support or refute Breggin, the materials would have more meaning for students.

read this link:

"Quack Watch" may be the best summary.
