So does "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care." When proving a theory trumps the two guides above, all results are suspect. When ethics are questionable, that's when the claws come out in any association. And yes, it's always a two- way street. Client-centered, compassionate caring and constructive counseling increasing coping capacity; that's the goal of psychology and psychiatry. It should also be the goal of those who deal with abductees of any type. And you probably already know that. For those who don't, I highly recommend Motivational Interviewing which I use daily in my work.
