Last Tuesday, November 5th, I spoke in Newry, Northern Ireland, about that research study from Bristol University with a 3000-word “correction/clarification” now appended to it. The talk was called “The Lightning Process Trial: A Saga of Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Research–and Even Worse Editorial Decisions.” The name comes from a well-known kids’ book, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.”
Midway through this talk, I mentioned anecdotal accounts of post-LP crashes, including suicide. While I have read and heard anecdotal accounts of attempted suicide, I should not have included (completed) suicide. This version has been edited to remove the reference to suicide, including on the accompanying slide. I apologize for the error.
This video also has some general sound issues. (These issues are outside my domain of responsibility, but sorry about them anyway.)
Oh, and I ironed my shirt beforehand!!
