The Soviet Union and the World Psychiatric Association.

Abstract

KIE:

The chairman of the World Psychiatric Association's Working Group on the Internment of Dissenters in Mental Hospitals reviews the events leading to the resignation of the All-Union Society of Neurologists and Psychiatrists of the USSR from the Association. Wynn perceives the move as a victory for human rights . He attributes the political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union to a set of social values which has spawned a psychiatric system based on criteria of mental illness that differ from those used in Western countries.
