When I was a reading teacher there was a method of teaching which if you did not adopt, you were considered unfashionable, ignorant etc. I did my own thing was chastised by the system but loved by chn. and parents when the results became evident. A little OT.yes but my point is that because a theory is becoming legtimised it is not necessarily right. It is scary to me how the Wellesly Psych Theories are penetrating right through the professionals..A journal article concludes so and so (I won't descibe this) and people assume it is gospel. If you have had any experience with Psych Research you will know how easy it is get the results you want...observer affecting the outcome etc.. Tansy has been warning about this influence for some time but it upsets me when people on this board collude with this approach. The damage is huge. I have been very interested in this area from the time of diag in '93 We all have to use our precious energy defending our pre infection normality and sanity.What does this do to our nervous and Immune Systems and how nicely does it fuel community prejudice and ignorance. I would like to ignore this it makes me ill but I can't because I have been around long enough to know the story.
