Dr Markus Bidell, 2014-2015 Regents University London Fulbright scholar presents the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences Fulbright lecture.
Location: Tuke Common Room, Regent's University London
Primarily fueled by non-violent offenders often with serious mental illnesses, the U.S. now has the world’s highest incarceration rate. The situation is so dire that many now refer to U.S. prisons as ‘America’s New Asylums’.
This lecture explores the past and present treatment of the mentally ill in the U.S. and how the prison industrial complex is violating human rights and threatening American democracy.
The audience will be able to consider the ways in which this is, or is not, similar to UK based Mental Health policy and the implications for the practice of therapy and democracy.
