Hello List

In the interests of 'completeness' have reviewed some messages
on this subject.

First, I made my own opinion clear in a reply to Eleanor last
year:

Subject: Re: 'Abductees Need To See A Psychiatrist'

Then we got an enlightening report from Cathy Reason, in
January:

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:

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
