Episode details

Can something that appears to the outside world as a psychotic break also be regarded as a legitimate religious epiphany? Maybe the difference lies in how you respond to it, or whether your peers and your therapist know how to help you integrate the experience. Through his teaching and writing, Dr. David Lukoff helps his patients and the wider mental health community to do just that. Today he talks about his own episode, what it meant to him, and how it enables him to help others who are struggling to do the same.
