About Daniel Dorman, MD
Daniel Dorman has been a practicing psychiatrist for more than 40 years and a professor of psychiatry at UCLA School of Medicine since 1972. Due to his background in neurophysiology, he understands the toxic consequences of using drugs to treat mental illness. He specializes in treating patients without the use of medication, including psychotic patients. His humanistic approach to psychiatry relies on patient-doctor collaboration rather than drugs, even in the most serious cases.
In addition to his books, Dorman has contributed a chapter to "Existential-Integrative Psychotherapy: Guideposts to the Core of Practice", ed. K. J. Schneider (Routledge, 2008), and co-authored, with David Garfield, a chapter in "Beyond Medication: Therapeutic Engagement and the Recovery from Psychosis" (Routledge, 2009). Dr. Dorman is currently at work on a new book. He has lectured nationally and internationally and has been featured on numerous TV documentaries and news segments on mental health.
