Jane Backner interviews Dr. Peter Breggin, Washington, DC psychiatrist, who has for the past year done research into the return of psycho-surgery and lobotomy as an accepted medical treatment for a variety of diagnosed emotional problems. In this program he discusses why the large majority of people undergoing psychosurgery are women. Dr. Breggin is on the faculty of the Washington School of Psychological Research and has written two books: "The Crazy and the Sane," published last year (1971?); and "The Hebrew Disease," to be published in the fall (1972?).
