Psychiatry indeed sought legitimacy from mainstream medicine by trying to redefine emotional disorders as biological. This move was successful, but has come home to roost. There are fewer and fewer graduates of medical schools who want to become psychiatrists. There are fewer and fewer psychiatrists – try to find one if you need one – you’ll be surprised, they are disappearing. The lack of sense of mission and the devaluation of the training in the psychological aspects are partly to blame. The prostitution of all of medicine by insurance companies, big pharma and hospital executives play a bigger part. So who do you find in the trenches today? NP’s. All these issues are very complex and determined by powerful economic forces that determine outcomes behind the scenes. Focusing on psychiatrists as drug pushers is chasing ghosts, specifically ghosts from the 60’s-70’s.
