Those of you who want to be enticed into reading Richard Bentall’s book should listen to this short podcast produced by the BBC. I came across it by chance but it is story that is also described by Bentall. It relates to the Rosenhan experiment, named after the research who investigated the way in which people get labelled as mentally ill. Rosenhan died earlier this year and the BBC produced a short podcast to commemorate the significance of his work. You must listen to. Here is the link
Look a the June 5th 2012 episode: The Rosenhan Experiment. A must for every student of psychiatry.
