The pseudo-scientific nature of psychotherapy |

TBC Staff

Many critics in the field recognize the pseudo-scientific nature of psychotherapy.  Psychiatrist-lawyer Jonas Robitscher, in his book The Powers of Psychiatry, says regarding the scientific status of psychiatric advice: “His advice is followed because he is a psychiatrist, even though the scientific validity of his advice and recommendations has never been firmly established....The infuriating quality of psychiatrists is...their insistence that they are scientific and correct and that their detractors, therefore, must be wrong.”
