Leaked Video: Scientology's anti-psychiatry front talks strategy with psych professor - 2020-08-09
Meet one of Scientology's long time allies in their war against psychiatry, Lisa Cain, who talks with the church's anti-psych front group, Citizens Commission on Human Rights, in a new leaked video.
Internet outages caused our source to lose part of this CCHR briefing with staff members Eitan Celender, Fred Shaw, and Cain, a Professor of Psychology in the Los Angeles Community College District, but we have most of it. We're accustomed to CCHR's allegations of abuse by mental health professionals but the involvement of Cain is something we haven't seen before.
She's been associated with Scientology and CCHR since at least 2012. Cain recounts how she visited CCHR's Psychiatry: An Industry of Death Museum in Los Angeles after seeing an advertisement in a college newspaper. Her beliefs about the state of the mental health profession are very much in line with Scientology. She denies the validity of the biomedical model of mental illness in which some conditions can be treated with prescription drugs.
