Title

Ford Hall Forum: Kitty Dukakis, Michael Dukakis, and Larry Tye: Shock: The Healing Power of Electroconvulsive Therapy [audio recording]

Date

15 October 2007

Description

After suffering from decades from severe depression, substance abuses problems, and hospitalizations, Kitty Dukakis now credits her recovery to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). Opponents of ECT would like to see the treatment banned on the basis of its common side effects, including memory loss. Many patients say these are a small price to pay for control over a disabling condition. Governor Michael Dukakis and author Larry Tye join Kitty Dukakis for a discussion on how this medical treatment – along with the support of family and loved ones – can potentially help individuals through the horrors of clinical depression.
