Electroshock Presentation at OISE on Monday, June 4

CAPA director, Bonnie Burstow, reports:

I will be doing a presentation on electroshock at the 4th Critical Multicultural Counselling Conference at OISE. I will be in the Paper Session No 6, which is happening tomorrow [Monday, June 4, 2007] from 10:30-12:30. While all others parts of this conference are only open to people who have paid, the 6th session will be open to the public, at my request. So do feel free to come. I don’t know what rooms things will be in, but hopefully that will be easy to find out if you get here in good time.

OISE is at  252 Bloor Street West, between St. George and Bedford, in Toronto. If coming by transit take the Bloor-Danforth subway line to the St. George station.

    Bonnie’s anti-shock presentation at OISE was super – too bad many other faculty didn’t bother to attend, they missed another brilliant, hard-hitting critique of electroshock as psychiatry-and-state-sanctioned violence women. Dr.Bonnie Burstow is the only academic and psychotherapist in Canada who has repeatedly, publicly and courageously denounced electroshock and urged its abolition. See her articles, “Electroshock as a Form of Violence Against Women,” and “Understanding and Ending ECT: A Feminist Imperative.”
