About the Author
After a long career in the field, Dr Dineen came to the conclusion that psychology, originally a science dedicated to the curing of serious pathology, has become diluted into what is now a broad range of pseudo-science and pseudo-therapy. Patients with little seriously wrong are offered therapy which is often of unproven value and kept on a payment string for as long as possible, focusing on what the therapist claims is wrong with them rather than what is right with them. From th adage of a cure for every ill, we have arrived at an ill for every cure and the ever-increasing use of psychology of little probatgive value in legal cases which often were no more based on scientific logic than the witch trials of centuries past became too much for Dr Dineen to stand. No longer believing psychology could reform itself from the inside, she left clinical practice and now runs a B&B in Victoria, British Columbia. She also writes several columns each month on various topics for Canadian newspapers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
