There seems to be some confusion about the initials A.P.A. Sometimes the American Psychological Association is being referred to; other times it's the American Psychiatric Association. What gives? Can't these two huge organizations come up with separate handles??

It sometimes makes it difficult to keep the documentation straight.

FYI, here are two more links to consider in addition to the wealth of 'AmPsychi' and 'AmPsycho' documentation in Scripter's 'Index of Links' thread:

Think of it in these terms.

American Psychiatric Association are MD's

American Psychological Association are PHD's

And at the bottom of the food chain are Psychotherapists ie. college graduates.
