The Writings of Professor Robert M. Young
'Human Nature, Psychotherapy and the Law: Issues of Violence and Racism' 95K
I was asked to give a talk to the Law School of the University of Manitoba. Drawing on my earlier writings, I set out to draw attention to the primitive and perverse processes at work in sexual abuse, violence and racism. I did some research on the statistics of psychiatric morbidity in prisons and related matters. The implication of my argument is that unless we move from a punitive to a therapeutic approach, things will continue to get worse. I cite evidence that such people can be helped by therapy and therapeutic communities and that the younger they are helped, the better their prospects of not reoffending. The talk was delivered on 13 January 1999.
