  • Is it reasonable to assume that different physicians, therapists and doctors have different opinions within their respective fields? Yes indeed. That’s a simple reality we can’t deny here.

    I don’t think that is a reasonable assumption to claim that “mainstream psychiatry is the same in all countries”; especially considering how many people, cultures, differences in practice style and different schools of psychiatric practice exist even within the United States. It’s very arrogant and extremely ignorant to pretend that they would be the same. I’d hope someone who claimed to have a background in science would actually be able to see how irrational such biased claims are. Alas, I don’t get the sense that he’s approaching his evaluation of others in good faith.

    Would you feel happy if someone thought you were the same as someone else from a completely different culture, merely because you shared the same profession?

  • “because mainstream psychiatry is the same in all countries” – that seems like a very broad and biased claim to have. You’d have to have some objective measure for what counted as a standard of medicine in each country; then also compare those measures to every single country with psychiatric treatments…. which I doubt the author here has done.
