This is really my last word on the subject because if it's not something you understand or believe, you don't, and I don't have any illusions that I'll be able to explain it well enough to change anyone's mind.

The information is out there on the web. Anyone can find it and most of us have. Believe me, we wouldn't have ended up at this site if we didn't have some ability to google. The sites you posted are rather particularly accessible as opposed to, say, a medline article.

There is plenty of anti-psychology and anti-any give subset of psychology articles and books out there, and most of us have probably read them.

However, there is a big difference between those articles being out there and accessible and you approaching a particular poster and criticizing their therapy modality. The one is providing research results and alternative points of view. The second is interfering in an ongoing therapeutic relationship, intentionally or not.

I personally would not raise an eyebrow if you were to start a thread saying that you thought psychoanalysis, EMDR, DBT, CBT or psychotherapy in general was nothing more than witchcraft, or whatever it is you believe. Anyone who wished to could join the conversation. Anyone who didn't wish to could ignore it.

But when someone is describing their therapeutic experiences, especially if they are discussing it in a positive way, and you come in and say the same thing, it's a completely different thing and could set therapy back considerably.

If the difference is something that eludes you, I'm afraid someone else will have to give it a shot, because I don't see any other way to describe it.
