Humane Alternatives to the Psychiatric Model is the second Volume of the Ethics International Press Critical Psychology and Critical Psychiatry Series.

Understanding the current systems of psychology and psychiatry is profoundly important. So is exploring alternatives. The Critical Psychology Critical Psychology and Critical Psychiatry Series presents solicited chapters from international experts on a wide variety of underexplored subjects. This is a series for mental health researchers, teachers, and practitioners, for parents and interested lay readers, and for anyone trying to make sense of anxiety, depression, and other emotional difficulties. 

Humane Alternatives to the Psychiatric Model presents a variety of alternative models and approaches that are available in addition to, or instead of, the current predominant psychiatric “mental disorder” model. Humane Alternatives to the Psychiatric Model provides more than twenty solicited chapters from experts worldwide, among them Peter Kinderman, former president of the British Psychological Society, and other respected cultural commentators and mental health experts.

Dr. Chuck Ruby, Ph.D., is Executive Director of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry. He is a U.S. Air Force veteran and a licensed psychologist in private practice in southern Maryland who has been offering psychotherapy services for nearly 25 years.
