However the treatment has its passionate critics, not least because it can erase decades of memory.

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

July 13, 1983. This segment records the first program in a series called Friends and artists, featuring Ann Reinking and Clive Barnes. The program is introduced by Kit Dovell, of Friends of Jacob's Pillow, and Liz Thompson, director of Jacob's Pillow. Reinking and Barnes ask each other questions and then answer questions from the audience. Reinking describes how she became interested in dance and how she became involved in musical theater; Barnes discusses his early love for theater and how he decided to become a critic. Reinking and Barnes both comment on the importance of having a broad, eclectic view of dance, and the place of dramatic expression and individuality in dance. Barnes discusses his introduction of the term "plotless," rather than "abstract," to describe ballets; his dance training and choreographic experience; his decision to leave the New York Times. Reinking describes how her training changed when she went into musical theater; the importance of ballet training in the musical theater, especially for men; her love for performing. Barnes discusses the influence of television, superstars, and increased press coverage on the growth of dance in America, and why New York City has the largest number of dance companies in America

Shock by Kitty Dukakis( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kitty Dukakis has battled debilitating depression for more than twenty years. Coupled with drug and alcohol addictions that both hid and fueled her suffering, Kitty's despair was overwhelming. She tried every medication and treatment available; none worked for long. It wasn't until she tried electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, that she could reclaim her life. Kitty's dramatic first-person account of how ECT keeps her illness at bay is half the story of Shock. The other half, by award winning medical reporter Larry Tye, is an engrossing look at the science behind ECT and its dramatic yet subterranean comeback. This book presents a full picture of ECT, analyzing the treatment's risks along with its benefits. ECT, it turns out, is neither a panacea nor a scourge but a serious option for treating life threatening and disabling mental diseases, like depression, bipolar disorder, and others. Through Kitty Dukakis's moving narrative, and interviews with more than one hundred other ECT patients, Shock: The Healing Power of Electroconvulsive Therapy separates scare from promise, real complications from lurid headlines. In the process Shock offers practical guidance to prospective patients and their families, boldly addressing the controversy surrounding ECT and awakening millions to its capacity to heal
