Oh this is swell. It's going to screw up already screwed up people even more.
It's called brainwashing.
I found it physically impossible to get my head that far up may A$$
It's a little difficult to see how social justice issues tie into my little OCD problem.
I guess I could liberate my inner clean freak and do free day work for oppressed GBTLs.
In other words, brainwashing...

I have been a Ph.D. psychologists for more than 15 years, and have seen all sorts of left-wing nonsense from others in the field. This Psy.D. character(a non-research based degree)is sadly typical.
It diminishes the respectability of our field when psychologists promote blatantly political agendas that lack empirical support. Technically, one could say that such behavior is unethical, but that will never fly with the APA.
Two psychologists meet on the street...
Psycologist#1: Hey, how'm I doing?
Psycologist#2: You're fine, how'm I?
Isn't that an oxy moron?
So where's the chapter on the correct use of beads and rattles?
So much for the "science" of psychology. These people are harder to take seriously with every passing day.
"our theories must be embraced tentatively, as metaphors, not reified as truth or normalcy." - except, that is, for the theories of Liberation Psychology, which must be swallowed whole. Right?
Since I don't know any of you personally, I'll share this:
The two times in my life when I needed someone to talk to (one unexpected divorce that blind-sided my life & dealing with the untimely death of my best girlfriend of 20+ years) I used a woman who has a Christian-based therapy practice. She never ONCE mentioned "God" to me, but she totally held ME accountable for getting through my crisis periods and getting ON with my life.
When I've talked to others about their therapy experiences, almost ALL of them went to the same person for years and years and were really not held accountable for the chitty things that had happened to them in Life, some of which clearly were their own doing through the dumb, emotionally-based decisions they made.
Simply amazing to me, but it clearly shows you that:
a. There are some really bad therapists out there;
b. It's easy to milk money out of people if you keep on telling them "It's not YOUR fault, poor kitten!"
c. I was lucky and blessed to find someone decent to help me sort through things.
Buyer beware, I guess? LOL!
The APA must be outlawed from all serious science.
They need to be marginalized like a freakshow homosexual pride parade.
That's what the Soviets used to do.
And the queers are already doing that -- by taking homosexuality off the list of disorders, when it is obviously disordered conduct, then labeling normal people "homophobic" if they think what queers do is sick and wrong.
The fall, 2004 issue of the APA's Division 44 newsletter, includes an essay by Judith M. Glassgold, Psy.D. urging her colleagues to think of psychology as a liberationist tactic to fight against social oppression and for social justice.
Writing in "In dreams begin responsibilities': Psychology, agency and activism," Glassgold suggests that therapists must make psychology " a liberation experience, to be among those who offer solutions to problems of social justice."
psychologists to adopt the philospohy of Liberation Psychology (Martin-Baro, 1994), which is rooted in ideologies from Latin and South American countries.
Psychologists must reject seeing individual personal
and be willing to see these problems
as the consequences of social injustice, says Glassgold. Psychotherapists must revise deterministic theories of social issues and "incorporate contextualist models that better explain concepts such as social
power, freedom, agency , and resistance
psychologists must view the world as a n
place, and they must resist efforts of outside forces to label them. The goal should be to "create new meanings" and "social definitions" in order to liberate others from social structures that define what is normal or abnormal
Glassgold believes that any system that says one
identity is normal and others are not, is oppressive and must be resisted. "Systems that attempot to define what is ' normal
' are systems that attempt to limit human potential. ...our theories must be embraced tentatively, as metaphors, not reified as truth or normalcy
"We must focus on making psychology and psychotherapy more than just a Band-aid for broader social problems, but as an intrinsic part of social justice and personal
There. Much better.
PS. If anyone had any doubts about the worthlessness of modern psychology...
