    About "R.D. Laing"

    1. R.D. Laing

      Ronald David Laing was a Scottish psychiatrist who wrote extensively on mental illness in particular, the subjective experience of psychosis Laing s views on the causes and treatment of serious mental dysfunction, greatly influenced by existential philosophy, ran counter to the psychiatric orthodoxy of the day by taking the expressed feelings of the individual patient or client as valid descriptions of lived experience rather than simply as symptoms of some separate or underlying disorder Laing was associated with the anti psychiatry movement although he rejected the label.
