New Editorial: Opposition to ECT? Let’s Not Confuse Things…

 In his recent article, entitled “Electroconvulsive Therapy–The Second Most Controversial Medical Procedure”, Dr. Charles H. Kellner, chief of the division of geriatric psychiatry at the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine in New York City, presents a most welcome testimony to the salubrious effects of ECT for those with treatment-resistant depression. Family members of loved ones for whom ECT could bring relief after all else fails should appreciate his stout defense of the admittedly controversial therapy. But Dr. Kellner does a disservice to those seeking clarity about ECT by comparing its opponents to those who oppose abortion. See PsychOdyssey’s editorial here. See all of PsychOdyssey’s editorials here.
