As defined by the President of the American Psychological Association in 1998, it is the voices of consumers acting as professionals without adequate knowledge to practice.

The therapeutic language? is this project modeled after a therapuetic community or after mutual support groups? Do people go to professionals for support and education? Do professionals practice therapeutic dialogue in open forums?
