Coupled with drug and alcohol addictions that both hid and fueled her suffering, Kittys despair was overwhelming. She tried every medication and treatment available- none worked for long.

It wasnt until she tried electroconvulsive therapy, or ECT, that she could reclaim her life. Kittys dramatic first-person account of how ECT keeps her illness at bay is half the story of Shock. The other half, by award-winning medical reporter Larry Tye, is an engrossing look at the science behind ECT and its dramatic yet subterranean comeback. This book presents a full picture of ECT, analyzing the treatments risks along with its benefits.

ECT, it turns out, is neither a panacea nor a scourge but a serious option for treating life-threatening and disabling mental diseases, like depression, bipolar disorder, and others. Through Kitty Dukakiss moving narrative, and interviews with more than one hundred other ECT patients, Shock: The Healing Power of Electroconvulsive Therapy separates scare from promise, real complications from lurid headlines. In the process Shock offers practical guidance to prospective patients and their families, boldly addressing the controversy surrounding ECT and awakening millions to its capacity to heal.
