  • NBC’s David Gregory Slams Blair Over Islamic Terrorism: Didn’t You And Bush Make It Worse?

    NBC’s David Gregory pressed Tony Blair over the resurgence of Islamic fundamentalism worldwide, arguing that perhaps the former British prime minister’s support for the Iraq War bolstered Islamic terrorism — a charge Blair vehemently denied. Blair appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday to advocate for a stronger Western response to the burgeoning threat of Islamic fundamentalism in places like Syria, Yemen, Iraq and North Africa. But Gregory pushed back. ”Isn’t the legacy of your leadership, and that of President Bush, in part responsible for the reality today?” he asked, noting that many in both the United States and Britain...
  • Disturbing conversation with a therapist re: seizing patient’s guns

    I had a disturbing conversation with a therapist about reporting/seizing patient’s guns. It revolved around the recent FR article reporting a 72 year old man had his musket collection seized because his therapist requested it. (A link would be appreciated.) We’ll call the therapist Bill. Bill: “A therapist must follow the ethical guidelines of the practice plus any state laws. So, if the patient had expressed any suicidal ideation or depression, the therapist may be obligated to report this and the weapons will be seized.” Me: “Do you think that might damage the trust relationship with the therapist?” Bill shrugged...

    As I’ve already described in this paper earlier in the year, Billy had escaped from the garden of our home and run across a dual carriageway, where he hit a car with such force that the driver’s registration plate snapped in half. Having suffered two leg fractures, a broken tail, a nasty gash on his forehead and, most worryingly, a near-collapsed lung, no one knew if he would make it. ... In what I can only describe as a Christmas miracle, Billy survived the night and the night after that. We brought him home in a very sorry state on...

    When New York Rep. Anthony Weiner confessed Monday to posting a picture of his erect penis on Twitter, he said he wouldn’t rule out seeking professional help to sort through his personal issues. Considering his alleged tendency to take dirty photos of himself and send obscene messages to strangers, perhaps he’ll take naked therapist Sarah White up on her offer to counsel him in the nude. According to White’s website, she’s willing to give the congressman “one free Naked Therapy session to help him begin addressing his problems. As Ms. White told Mr. Weiner, the methods of Naked Therapy are...
  • Woman who had sex with therapist sues LDS Family Services for negligence

    A woman has sued LDS Family Services for not taking action against a therapist she said convinced her that having sex with him would help her overcome a history of sexual abuse and the “demons” inside her. Therapist William Chadwick Holbrook met with Vickie Jacobsen for years — seeing her several times a week, calling her in for sessions when other clients canceled, frequently calling her in the middle of the night, and inviting her to stay at his home — and diagnosed her with having multiple personalities before telling her that God wanted them to have sex, according to...

    WASHINGTON, April 18, 2008 – Army Capt. Chris Remillard took hometown recruiting to a whole new level when he gave a live guest lecture to students at Ithaca College in New York, from this base in Iraq. Remillard, a 2004 Ithaca College alumnus, spoke to the students April 2 and shared his experiences serving in the Army. He is a physical therapist assigned to the 3rd Infantry Division’s Company C, 703rd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team. A month before his guest lecture, Remillard received an invitation from a former Vietnam-era Army physical therapist, Dr. Michael Pagliarulo, chair of...

    The victims were among the most vulnerable. Their plight brought one hospital official to tears and drew flashes of anger from another yesterday as they described a horrifying case of child molestation and pornography at Children's Convalescent Hospital. A 54-year-old respiratory therapist has been arrested on 40 counts of possession, manufacture and distribution of child pornography and two counts of lewd and lascivious acts on two children under 14. In all, the charges involve nine children

    The tyranny of therapism Today — with a book for every ailment, a counselor for every crisis, a lawsuit for every grievance, and a TV show for every conceivable problem — we are at risk of degrading our native ability to cope with life's challenges. In 2000, five Canadian psychologists published a satirical article about Winnie the Pooh entitled 'Pathology in the Hundred Acre Wood'. At first glance, say the authors, the hero of AA Milne's 1926 children's classic appears to be a healthy, well-adjusted bear; but on closer and more expert examination, Pooh turns out to suffer from attention...
