Manufacturing victims.

Dr. Tana Dineen, in Manufacturing Victims: What the Psychology Industry is doing to People, states: …rather than being the best suited to evaluate therapy, Psychologists and their clients are the most biased and the least able to answer the following:
  • Is therapy effective?
  • Is it better than friendship?
  • Do higher paid professionals do a better job than minimally trained counsellors?
  • Does training and experience improve a therapist's skill?
  • Is therapy always helpful and safe?
  • Do professionals know more about human nature than the rest of us?
  • Would people naturally get worse without professional treatment?
