Drugging Our Children: How Profiteers Are Pushing Antipsychotics on Our Youngest, and What We Can Do to Stop It

By Sharna Olfman; Brent Dean Robbins | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

I wish to thank my coeditor Brent Robbins and all of the authors for their thought-provoking and original chapters, which are based on years of research, advocacy, and clinical work that has improved quality of life for countless children. Special thanks to my son, Adam, who kept my computer humming and my software up to date, and to my daughter, Gavriela, who kept my spirits high. Countless conversations with my husband, Dan Burston, sparked many ideas that are reflected in these pages.

Sharna Olfman

I owe a debt of gratitude to many who played a role in assisting me in the scholarship leading up to this book’s publication. Thank you to my coeditor and colleague at Point Park University, Sharna Olfman, for being the one who first alerted me to the growing problem of the overmedication of children. I am thankful as well to Dan Burston, who introduced me to the work of R. D. Laing and cultivated in me the critical thinking necessary to expose the hidden influences on psychiatry. Lisa Cosgrove and Robert Whitaker have been incredible sources of inspiration in their service as courageous role models for how to address pressing issues in a very public yet responsible way. I am grateful for the support and encouragement I have received from my colleagues at the Society for Humanistic Psychology (Division 32 of APA), including, among many others, Louis Hoffman, David Elkins, Shawn Rubin,
