When the neuroleptics-are-necessary-to-treat-schizophrenia myth falls, psychiatry is finished. And that is why the Goff et al paper was produced: a desperate attempt to maintain its position by a profession that is truly on the ropes. For psychiatry this is a death-struggle.

The Tree of Life is a hopeful and inspiring approach to working with children, young people and adults who have experienced hard times... This approach has proved so successful and popular … in a wide range of countries across Africa, and also in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Russia, Nepal, the USA, and elsewhere. (Dulwich Centre)
Ethnic Business Network, a collaborative initiative of the organisations Shama and I Am He(r), is committed to advocating for the ethnic business community, providing networking opportunities, and offering workshops that benefit ethnic businesses. Given the recent break-ins and robbery happening all around New Zealand, we feel there is a need to address this issue with the relevant stakeholders.
The workshop will include presenters from the Police and business groups. We encourage all ethnic businesses who are concerned about their business' safety to attend. We will also look at the Hamilton Council 10 Year Plan so we are able to address and influence policy that affects ethnic businesses.
The Safety workshop is not limited to Waikato businesses only. We welcome businesses owners from Auckland, Rotorua, Tauranga and other areas to attend. We hope the idea on an Ethnic Business Network will be expanded to other cities around New Zealand soon so let's keep in touch in the meantime.
We always welcome your feedback on any matters relating to ethnic businesses in New Zealand. Please like our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ebnhamilton/) and/or join our Linkedin group (www.linkedin.com/groups/13528243)
The detail of the workshop is attached below. We look forward to seeing you then.
Please also RSVP to this event. If you are already committed to other projects on this date, we encourage to let us know your feedback on our next workshop goo.gl/forms/dItfwyhmywrKv04k2
