On Her Life and Work
Dorothy Rowe is an internationally renowned psychologist whose work has changed how we think about mental health, and whose trenchant criticisms of the psychiatric system has played no small part in liberating many people from the worst abuses of the system. In this video she talks to Frank Wills, counsellor and author, about how her ideas developed both from her academic studies and research and from her own personal experience.
All of Dorothy Rowe’s work is based on the understanding that what determines our behaviour isn’t what happens to us but how we interpret what happens. She has applied this understanding to many of the important areas of our lives but most importantly to depression. She has shown how depression is not an illness but a defence which we can use when we discover that we have made a major error of judgement and then find ourselves terrifyingly falling apart.
