Debate About Building New Asylums Between Drs. Emanuel and Sederer

4-27-2015   Yesterday I published a blog about the controversy surrounding Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel and his colleagues’ JAMA article calling for states to begin constructing modern day asylums. I mentioned two points of view — Emanuel’s and Dr. Lloyd Sederer’s. Today I am posting the friendly debate that the two men had during last week’s National Council For Behavioral Health’s conference. This video is 30 minutes long and courtesy of the council.
