Laing never adhered to the label of ‘anti-psychiatry’, indeed he worked tirelessly as a psychiatrist for a more humane and theoretically expansive discipline of psychiatric medicine. But his work did bring to light some of the negative effects of a diagnostic label and the perhaps unintentional negative aspects of physical treatments, especially ECT, lobotomy and insulin coma regimes (Browne 2008). Laing did also implicate certain types of family relationships and interpersonal attitudes and styles of communicating, as well as wider social forces that he thought denied the self and alienated the person, and all of which seemed to correlate with a higher risk for psychotic breakdown, in young people especially.
