Gary Greenberg

PENELOPE BASS
7:30 pm., Sunday May 19 | Free.
Powell's City of Books
1005 W Burnside St.
 
We’re a culture of classifiers; everything needs to have a name and a Wikipedia page. But psychotherapist Gary Greenberg examines the “deeply flawed process” by which mental disorders are invented—and why more and more people are being declared mentally ill—in his new book, The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry. Greenberg will be joined in conversation by Will Hall, director of Portland Hearing Voices and host of KBOO’s Madness Radio.
