DR. DAN L. EDMUNDS AND THE CONCEPT OF 'ANARCHO-PSYCHOLOGY'
Noted existential psychoanalyst and social activist Dr. Dan L. Edmunds developed the term 'anarcho-psychology'. This term implies the need to break down barriers between therapist and client as well as those things that drive us apart within society. It also implies the need to restore community and work towards an end to oppression. Dr. Edmunds has been called the 'voice of compassion' in the mental health system and has worked with many undergoing extreme states, those who have experienced trauma, and autistic/developmentally different persons through drug free relational approaches. Dr. Edmunds' articles and prior interviews can be found at:
