    I loved this! As a student of David Rosenhan I have never understood tat professionals actually believed “mental disease diagnosis”. I had always explained to clients that the DSM describes symptoms, but they do not actually “have a disorder”. If they what to use their insurance, they have to choose one that they are willing to have for the rest of their life.

    A very enlightening discussion! I really enjoyed this and will defintely read Gary Greenburg’s book. I especially agreed with the the idea of psychotherapists taking a different direction. Thank you very much for this informative discussion!

    Thank you so much for the historical context of the DSM and the “Reality Check” on this psychiatry tome. I found your ideas refreshing. Definitely will read your book.
