Obviously, this clinical psychologist is both misinformed and is
an embarassment to others who work in the mental health
community. For those who have studied this phenomenon with
serious intent to learn and help those who have been
detrimentally effected by what their clients know as "an unreal
reality,"  these kinds of remarks only serve to discredit the
profession as well as those to whom they are pledged to help and
serve. I am embarrassed for him and for members of this list,
that we should even consider debating such an irresponsibly made
remark.
