dc.description.abstractECT remains one of the most controversial treatments in psychiatry. Although its efficacy and safety are acknowledged and have been confirmed (Chapter 1) there are still attempts (based on flawed reviews of the literature) to claim that its use cannot be scientifically justified (Read & Bentall, 2010). Media accounts of ECT tend to be highly emotive and vary from lauding ECT as life changing (Seelye, 2016) to damning it as abusive (Browne, 2000).en
