5. Interesting...



"By contrast psychotherapy leaves open to social perception the possibility of the role of personal culpability in mental illness. Talk-therapy, rational emotive therapy, skills training, etc. imply the mental illness is a consequence of a personal shortcoming in appropriate cognition, or emotional/behavioral self-control."

As much as I champion the role of 'personal culpability' in all areas of personal health, I do think the psychotherapy industry is at least as guilty of malpractice as the pharmaceutical industry.

It's all about blaming someone or some thing other than yourself. AA won't even let you quit drinking under your own power. As for behaving badly...well they have a name for that too.
