Write a 3-5 page paper that focuses on the issue of electroshock. You should summarize your issue, including the debate that exists surrounding that issue, and weigh in with an informed opinion. Be sure to refer to at least five peer reviewed sources.
There is a book we are reading in class called Mad Matters with a chapter on electroshock called “Electroshock: Torture as “Treatment” by Don Weitz. It talks about the procedure, the effects, and some future recommendations. I’ve attached pictures of the chapter so you can read it.
There’s also a good movie that features a psychiatric survivor called Lowdown Tracks. You don’t have to watch the entire thing, just the two parts where he discusses his experiences with electroshock, which are at 9:30 and then again at 23:30. Please include this source OR the book, with the 5 other peer reviewed journals in the essay.
Here’s the link to the movie: http://tvo.org/video/documentaries/lowdown-tracks-…
