First, I made my own opinion clear in a reply to Eleanor last year: www.ufoupdateslist.com/2011/mar/m02-006.shtml Subject: Re: 'Abductees Need To See A Psychiatrist' Then we got an enlightening report from Cathy Reason, in January: http://www.ufoupdateslist.com/2012/jan/m17-006.shtml Subject: Re: Participation In Psychology Dissertation Study which has made me look for and find the report of a larger experiment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosenhan_experiment here's my note on it: "N.b. the results of that small 'experiment' were further confirmed by a larger check (by Rosenhan and colleagues) which showed that false diagnoses of 'mental disorder' were made (for healthy volunteers) at all the psychiatric institutions they tested: 12 different psychiatric hospitals in five different states in various locations in the United States" and a conclusion: "that "psychiatry/psychology" is not a science and consists mostly of opinions of operators motivated by self-interest (sometimes abusive and even criminal self-interest, as shown by the extremely high statistics of abuse of patients by 'psychiatrists')". To cap it all, here's a presentation found today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHu7Ik36128 CCHR On Psychiatry: No Science, No Cures It seems that, unlike medical doctors who can bury their mistakes, psychiatrists can lock-up their mistakes and use mind- altering drugs on them to "confirm" false diagnoses. I hope, in future, that anyone thinking of accepting _any_ dictum from the psychiatry/psychology camp would think again. Their words are about as reliable as politicians' promises - and IMHO for the same reason: they are self-interested professional liars (or fools, of course). Cheers Ray D Listen to 'Strange Days...
