The Lobotomy Procedure Trampled on Patient's Rights

The procedure of the lobotomy, which is a surgical procedure in which the nerve pathways in a lobe or lobes of the brain are severed, took lives and trampled on patient's rights. This procedure was performed in the medical practice for decades during the 1940's and 1950's.

"A lobotomy, or leucotomy, is a form of psychosurgery, a neurosurgical treatment of a mental disorder that involves severing connections in the brain's prefrontal cortex. Most of the connections to and from the prefrontal cortex, the anterior part of the frontal lobes of the brain, are severed. It was used for treating mental disorders and occasionally other conditions as a mainstream procedure in some Western countries for more than two decades, despite general recognition of frequent and serious side effects. Some patients improved in some ways after the operation, but complications and impairments – sometimes severe – were frequent. The procedure was controversial from its initial use, in part due to the balance between benefits and risks. Today, the lobotomy has become a disparaged procedure, a byword for medical barbarism and an exemplary instance of the medical trampling of patients' rights." -Wikipedia

It is recorded that many patients died as a result of the lobotomy operation and many later died by suicide.

What does this teach us about the mental health practice?

The lobotomy procedure shows us that doctors who are being considered to be professionals really don't know what they are doing when it comes to mental health treatment and that they trample on patient's rights with procedures and treatments that may be inhumane.

Other Examples of Medical Unprofessionalism

The medications that are being prescribed in the current psychiatric practice are claimed to have proven a statistical percentage of effectiveness in the treatment of mental illnesses using experiments whose results cannot be replicated as scientists are currently finding out in The Replication Crisis of psychology and psychiatric medicine.

Current practitioners of psychology and psychiatry also ignore The Devouring Mother Archetype of mothers who "consume" their children emotionally and psychologically, never allowing them to become independent. The Devouring Mother Archetype was first documented by Carl Jung, the man behind the idea for the current model for all psychiatric diagnoses. Doctors ignore and fail to inspect for these mothers that abuse their children from birth until death by taking them to the doctor and asking for medications and surgeries that their children don't need, which is also known as Munchausen by proxy.
