T. Byram Karasu, chief psychiatrist at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx, N.Y., says excessive stimuli, especially sounds and lights, can trigger psychotic symptoms in people with underlying psychological issues.
Dr. Karasu says he?s seen seemingly normal people have a psychotic episode after being up all night and then taking something like Ritalin or amphetamines to stay awake. ?Twenty-four hours later the person will be totally back to his normal self,? he says.
However, these people usually do have some underlying vulnerability, Dr. Karasu says.

Author : T. Byram Karasu
No matter how many self-help books we read, workshops we attend, spiritual endeavors we pursue; no matter how often we cuddle our inner child or redesign our outer adult, many people keep returning to a gnawing angst and vague unhappiness, according to T. Byram Karasu, author of The Art of Serenity. o­ne of the problems is that many of us define happiness in paradisiacal, childish terms, causing us to feel like we're missing out."Happiness in adulthood, however, requires realism, reciprocity, and coming to terms with o­ne's mortality," he writes.And, of course, it requires us to cultivate the art of serenity.Like M. Scott Peck, author of The Road Less Traveled, Karasu brings a psychological background to the area of spiritual growth. (Karasu is the chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Science at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as the editor in chief of the American Journal of Psychotherapy.) Sometimes blending spirituality and psychology muddies the waters, but Karasu has a solid understanding of how the two worlds intersect and has created an outstanding and completely accessible guide to lasting inner happiness.The door of joyful serenity can o­nly be opened by a "combination key involving both soul and spirit," he explains.And it all culminates in the love of God.Using real-life cases from his psychotherapy practice, Karasu illustrates how the principles of soul work and spirit work are applied to daily lives.From lovers' jealousy to workplace angst, from friendships to solitude, Karasu offers original, lasting advice and insights.
Drawing o­n, among many other traditions and influences, folktales, mythology, Eastern philosophy, Sufi poetry and Judeo-Christian theology, Karasu, a scholar, lecturer and the editor in chief of American Journal of Psychotherapy, fashions a spiritual guide to help suffering people find genuine happiness and "an extraordinary and permanent joyful serenity."His message is a simple o­ne: such serenity comes from loving others, loving o­ne's work and belonging to a community, and from being able to believe in unity, the sacred, and the possibility of transformation.These feelings find their ultimate meaning and inspiration, he says, in "believing in and loving God."Moving through these themes in compassionate chapters full of anecdotes, literary references and stories from his own patients, Karasu shows how they resolved their issues and learned to live with joy.
In this brilliantly written work, Dr. T. Byram Karasu addresses these questions, guiding us o­n a remarkable journey exploring the deepest yearnings of the human heart....The Art of Serenity is profound, absorbing, and insightful, written for those seeking a more soulful and spiritual existence.

"To me, grief is a normal ..., 24 Feb 2012 [cached]
"To me, grief is a normal condition, not to be tagged with a diagnostic code and to be treated," stressed Dr. T. Byram Karasu, chairman of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and psychiatrist-in-chief at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City. "Everyone loses someone in their lives at some point. So, this would be classifying everyone at some point. No one would be immune to this."
"And that does not make sense, because grief is a normal and very healthy behavior," said Karasu, who also chairs the APA's National Task Force on the treatment of depression.
