Psychotherapist, author, and journalist Dr. Gary Greenberg is set to speak at Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) on Apr. 7 at 5:30 p.m. SNHU’s own Psychology Student Association (PSA) will be welcoming Dr. Greenberg to give a Psych Talk on psychotherapy and the placebo effect at the Mara Auditorium in Webster Hall.
Dr. Greenberg is the author of four books and is a contributing writer and editor for “Mother Jones” and “Harper’s,” respectively. His writings circulate around mental illnesses, psychological theories, and his own theories based on societal views and treatments of mental illnesses. Dr. Greenberg’s most recent work is “The Book of Woe: The DSM and the Unmaking of Psychiatry.”
His book “Manufacturing Depression: The Secret History of a Modern Disease” touches upon the topic of the placebo effect as a treatment for major depression. This Psych Talk will delve further into theories about the placebo effect and the power of psychotherapy to treat mental illnesses like depression.
PSA President and senior Elizabeth Worth said “PSA is thrilled to have Dr. Gary Greenberg come this year since he is very well-known in the field. We are holding a raffle of his signed books at the event and all of the proceeds will be going to Jayme’s Fund, a local nonprofit that we work very closely with. We hope to get many students involved since Dr. Greenberg has made so many great contributions to the field.”
