"That would mean being sensitive to and respectful of those who utilize therapy services by not expressing negative judgments about them,"

Clarification please: are you refering to those who use therapy services as "them" or the services themselves. If it is the former, that of course would be uncivil. But if it is the later, I think it might be civil if the poster wrote something like, "in my opinion, CBT is not all that effective" or something like that. (Which I do believe has been written before.) I guess I'm asking if "we" can criticize a particular kind of therapy or therapist, if we are careful to not criticize a person utilizing that kind of therapy.

Does this make any sense? Because I agree with what you said - this board is about different kinds of therapy approaches and I think it would be beneficial to hear from those who might go against the majority opinion, which might not actually be a majority opinion...not that I'm encouraging conflict. Just an open discussion based on feelings, facts, experiences and other evidence that leads the poster to believe a particular way. I like that fact that a book reference was given as support to why a poster might believe something, though not to imply that "just" their own opinion isn't good enough...well, you get my drift.

Thanks for clarifying for me.
