> Also, even in psychology earning a doctorate has little to do with the moral fiber of the person with the degree. Perhaps in a clinically-oriented program there might be opportunities to "weed out" the obviously unsuitable, but education and ethics are still very distinct things, unfortunately!

But I don't understand how education and ethics can be completely different things in the field of therapy. Aren't they intrinsically interrelated? And isn't it unethical to award someone a degree that requires that they act as a fiduciary when they are incapable of fulfilling their responsibilities?

Then the question becomes - how do you tell who lacks moral fiber? Which is a troubling question really because how come they aren't able to tell? Shouldn't they be able to?

How come they can diagnose patients but they can't diagnose each other?
