    Prove that all psychologists don't hate modern values, kindly?

    Also, as most by definition practice them, why does it make me bad to engage in them? It's clear that psychology should be outlawed.

    I hold total right to hate all psychologists. if they think modern beliefs/actions are a sin, why do millions use the internet, get a Galaxy note/S4/iPhone 5C, believe racism is wrong, and don't scorn casual sex? yet it's bad for ME to do these things? haha!! fools!!

    It's clear your "ilk" select who receives good treatment. It's silly and ill-advised to deny it.

    @danseen, I'm sorry for the bad experiences that you have had; clearly you've been treated unfairly. But at least in the United States, where I live, the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) and the American Psychological Association (APA) both set ethical standards and address malpractice complaints. Before licensure is granted, psychologists here must take ethics coursework and pass ethics exams, and licensure can be revoked on the basis of unethical practice. Lying, cruelty, mockery, telling you that you deserve harm, informing you that your beliefs are wrong, and personally targeting you are all fair game for complaint to the professional associations that monitor psychological practice. If you feel like you were wronged and that it has caused lasting damage, I would gather all the factual evidence you can and present it to whatever the professional regulatory association for psychologists is in your area, and file a formal complaint.

    Beyond that, though, I do not think it is fair to group all psychologists as hating or not comprehending modern values, or as being out to get you. I am friends with quite a few psychologists who are not at all like the people you have described. They are open and compassionate about their work.
    I doubt that. They all hate modern society, yet I bet most of them use the Internet or balked in rage at the Zimmerman case haha..

    lol.. ok, so everybody must like all others. gotcha... and bitch yes, since complaining is evil, as the PC culture says.

    Though why do YOU post here, if you don't like this thread so much? tell me this thread means shit? And? Must I listen to your opinion? Do you think your word means everything and that all others must take heed of what you say? I sense insecurity in your statement on SO many levels...

    Patients aren't entitled to information that would break the ethics of a psychologist. For instance, psychologists aren't hired to disclose information about other patients. Breaking rules of confidentiality can get them fired, and at worst, can lead to a revoke of their license.
    So mocking interests that the MANY partake in is not "abuse"? lolol..

    No one said you weren't entitled to your feelings about anything/anyone here.
    Just because some may not agree with your broad generalizations about a particular profession, it doesn't mean they expect you to/are demanding you feel the same way.

    Moreover, practically everyone here agreed that, based on your description, your specific therapist behaved inappropriately.

    Most of us only ask to try to understand where you're coming from, however, open-ended questions appear to trigger your defenses and make you uncomfortable. of course I could be wrong, I don't know you. I'm not judging your character, merely sharing my perception thus far. Most people here aren't judging. Just asking to understand & sharing their own experiences in hopes you feel better after your own unpleasant experience. No one here is insisting you have to like anyone else, or that you see a shrink, dude. You're basing those conclusions solely on your own emotional reactions to what others say (&/or don't say), it seems.

    Honestly, my impression now is that perhaps you've come here to flesh out/finish an argument you may have had, or wanted to have with your therapist, but perhaps didn't/didn't feel you could. Like you showed up here, set on keeping people & genuine interaction at a distance, by placing yourself in a perpetually persecuted position (say that one 3x fast, haha). Even when others overtly empathize with you, or try to.

    Of course, by all means, correct me if I'm wrong. That's what healthy communication's for, right?


    You'll notice this community has a lot of active members. Generally this is because a lot of people here have interesting (or at the very least, entertaining) discussions, & manage to establish intra/interpersonal support systems, and friendships beyond the forum itself. You'd do well to throw down the armor & explore that aspect further, I think.

    So why do most restrict treatments at whim? I don't get it.
    Most of the time, I would say no, but I think in some cases it is.

    I'm sure I'm not the one you are soliciting proof from, but, nonetheless, let's talk about sets for a second. You claim that ALL psychologists hate "modern values". In that case, pointing to a single psychologist that does not disproves your claim.

    Well, I've had more than one psychologist, and while I did not find them to be equally helpful, I did find them all to be equally professional. If any of them secretly hated "modern values", none made me even suspect they did. And let's just say casual sex was the least eyebrow-raising/consternation-inducing lifestyle choice I've shared with them.

    Clearly you've run into a psychologist who was both unprofessional and a dick. Possibly more than one. That's bad luck, but hardly makes all psychologists unprofessional dicks, just all the one's you've had the honor of dealing with. That might justify your desire to stay away from all psychologists in the future, but it doesn't justify blackening the entire field or all of its practitioners.

    If you want to believe they're all hateful people, that's up to you... I don't think it's true, though, and I'm not sure I understand why you would want to see it that way.

    I do encourage you to look elsewhere for professional assistance if you think you could benefit from it, though. You could try a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, for example - an LCSW is a social worker by vocation but trained in counseling and therapy. Or if you're seeking more medically-oriented assistance, a psychiatrist may be more useful.

    For the record, I do not think your thread "means shit". I just note that there has been a fair amount of misunderstanding and accusation, hence "shitshow". It's not a negative judgment about either your thread or you. Just a neutral observation of what has transpired. I think it's a fine thread though I do not understand what you are gaining by grouping all psychologists together and choosing to think they are all bad.

    A friend of mine who is a psychologist says she is fine with people choosing to have casual sex as long as it is done with an awareness of personal safety and wellbeing, including caution about emotional attachment and protection from STDs.

    It's clear that psychology should be outlawed.
    I feel like it is a very large leap from "several psychologists told me that casual sex is bad" to "psychology should be outlawed". All psychology technically is, is the study of the mind. Do also bear in mind that a large portion of the population of the world believes that casual sex is bad. While I completely agree that a psychologist should not be pushing their personal ethical views in a clinical setting, I don't think it's reasonable to desire a global moratorium on studying the mental processes of humans because a handful of practitioners pushed beliefs you don't agree with.
