Babette Becker, a psychotherapist, writer, and certified yoga teacher, as well as a mother and grandmother, has completed her new book “I Should Have Been Music”: a delineating book of case reports and personal insights that mirrors the author’s colorful life inside mental facilities.

Author Becker presents a stark comparison and contrast in psychosis treatment during the late 1950s to early 1960s: “They use it as a punishment for those of us who misbehave. I see people coming back with their hair matted, dazed and bewildered, looking as if they are missing their souls. Their memories aren’t the same, and for a time, they may not remember who they are or where they belong: ‘What did you say your name was?’”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Babette Becker’s intricate tale follows a woman’s journey of finding herself amid her psychosis. This book also reveals the disparateness between a doctor’s perspective and a patient’s personal experiences, marking a gap between two diverse realities.

Readers who wish to experience this thought-provoking work can purchase “I Should Have Been Music” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
