Using meta-analysis he has criticized the widespread of use of antidepressants and other psychiatric drugs.

"Thank you for this invaluable combination of presentations. I have studied and practised medicine for some 48 years. The last four plus years, almost entirely psychopharmacology and psychotropic drug toxicology. These are amongst the most brilliantly prepared, researched and delivered expert lectures that I have studied. Powerful, precise and highly regarded learning experience."
