Dr Joseph H. Berke
Dr Joseph H. Berke was a pioneer of the medication free therapeutic community. He dedicated his life to working alongside people who some thought had no hope of recovery.
Berke proved that a different way is possible, and people need a safe space to explore their suffering and grow through trauma. He was against pathologising people, and reducing their complexities and difficult stories to psychiatric labels.
