Behind the Scenes with an ER Psychiatrist

Minnesota native Dr. Paul Linde reads from Danger to Self: On the Front Line With an ER Psychiatrist–4:00pm, Sunday, February 21, at Magers & Quinn Booksellers.

The psychiatric emergency room, a fast-paced combat zone with pressure to match, thrusts its medical providers into the outland of human experience where they must respond rapidly and decisively in spite of uncertainty and, very often, danger. In this lively first-person narrative, Dr. Paul R. Linde’s Danger to Self takes readers behind the scenes at an urban psychiatric emergency room, with all its chaos and pathos, where we witness mental health professionals doing their best to alleviate suffering and repair shattered lives.
