Peter and his wife Ginger have pioneered Empathic Therapy.
"An empathic approach allows a therapist to use the healing power of professional therapy relationships rather than the mechanical or chemical manipulation of the brain. The goal of therapy is to help clients maximize their ability to be empathic and loving toward themselves and others, to live ethically, and to become autonomous and self-determining in the fulfillment of all their chosen goals and ideals.
"In contrast, biological psychiatry views people as objects and suppresses their feelings with brain-disabling treatments, thereby interfering with the development of empathy and love, and the ability to take rationally determined actions based on sound values."
~ Peter Breggin
"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!" ~ Upton Sinclair
''The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers''

"You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together".
Al Swearengen (Deadwood):

"Progress is a nice word, but change is its motivator. And change has its enemies."
~ Bobby Kennedy
