The Lobotomist

Documentary on Dr. Walter Freeman, the infamous inventor of the trans-orbital lobotomy.

ECT

Scientology can always use the ECT card to discredit psychiatrists and discourage proper mental health treatment, and until it is seen for what it is, psychiatrists practicing it will always have to answer for a dubious treatment that literally relies on brain damage to "treat" the patient, just as they did with lobotomies. This is why patients, while already considered a danger to themselves or they wouldn't be in psychiatric hospitals, are asked to sign waivers in a de facto state of diminished capacity.
