‘The Dangerous Case Of Donald Trump’

“The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 27 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President” is a new book in which a group of mental health experts explore “a dangerously mad, man”— or, in other words, PresidentDonald Trump. Stemming from the Duty to Warn campaign out of Yale University, these experts believe that professional neutrality exists no longer, especially when we have a president like this one.

One of the book’s authors, Dr. Leonard Glass, resigned from the American Psychiatric Association after 41 years of membership over its "Goldwater Rule.” The rule, a point of contention for many psychiatrists, essentiallystates that one may not comment on the mental condition of a public figure one has not personally examined.

Jim Braude is joined by Dr. Glass, who is also an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and senior attending psychiatrist at McLean Hospital to discuss.
