  • As a clinical child psychologist in private practice for the past 15 years and adjunct psychology instructor, I am thrilled to have found your website tonight as I am researching websites for my child psychopathology students. For years I have advocated for less medicine and more cognitive/behavioral, psycho-social interventions as treatments for children with psychiatric diagnoses, but have felt mostly isolated in this quest. In the past it seemed that the proponents for changes to psychiatry were considered extremists who were not taken seriously by mainstream professionals. After reviewing your site, I am glad to see the support of so many professionals with diverse interests and backgrounds. I plan to be a frequent visitor and to refer colleagues and students who are interested in learning about alternative perspectives to the “diagnose and medicate” philosophy.
