I know I've heard many stories of this sort...you're not alone. Promoters of "talk therapy" do seem, too often, to act like evangelists or something.
I just thought that this post was a random (and uncalled-for) response that was only *very* tangentially related to the topic of the thread, so I question the motives of the author. (Does "Jay" even realise that the thread was about a textbook, not about so-called "philosophy of medication?" Or did he just pick a random thread to provide his unsolicited advice?)
> This guy previously sent me to a day hospital for 6 months and knows my view on talk therapy (ie one of the biggest scams of the C20th). So why is there going to be a psychologist present at my new appt?
I dunno (maybe they're just trying to keep the psychologists out of trouble and off the streets?), but I can't wait to hear how you deal with the situation. :-)
