do's and don'ts

I have been following this thread and I would like to say just a few words: Let's look at mental illness the way all the Ts currently say we should. It is an illness not something to be ashamed of but something to work out with medicine or talk therapy. Ok, everyone, got it. It is not like in the dark early days a secret only attended to by shaman like people who hold the solution to secrets in their own brains and methods. Well now if that is true---why should any of us as clients, patients, etc. have to undergo arcane approaches that further generate fear and misunderstanding? Put another way would you consistently wait and wait for a dentist (or any other type of doctor)? Would you wait while the doctor went over notes for ten or fifteen minutes to see what he/she was doing. Would you undergo a procedure that you were told nothing about to clean your teeth? Better yet would you not even know that you were having your teeth cleaned? Would you take medication without knowing its true effects or if it even worked? There are further analogies here but we all get the picture. The day of the mystical all-knowing father figure (Freud, Jung, etc)are long gone. Some of the stranger elements in therapy really need revision and patient input. Unless the patient has no grip on reality (psychotic) then input into treatment and methodology should really be taking place.
