Yea, that is how my program works as well. Scored the M.S. part in 2010.

As a caveat I should say that psychotherapy research is a pretty big morass of ego and controversy, and ppl kind of stab around in the dark re: what works. Mechanisms of action is sort of a new thing to be thinking about.
Therefore although I am fairly well read and have practical experience, I couldn't call myself an "expert" in the field. I'm really more of an "expert" on integrated healthcare/behavioral medicine because that is what I research and practice most.
I know of people whose opinion I respect who say they have been helped by it. I found a book based on cognitive-behavioural techniques very helpful in stopping smoking. I remain a little suspicious about the profession as a whole, because I am aware of several real-life cases of therapists whose business model appears to be based on encouraging insecure clients to become dependent on them.

I think that you're right about that Cullion, with regards to some ethical issues in the field. It also takes a lot of balls to be a therapist (e.g. I can help people with their problems!) so I think the field may tend to attract individuals with their own issues with neediness on occasion.

The brief counseling we try to practice draws from a population-based help-a-lot-of-people-a-little-bit philosophy.
Do I have to move my player marker back to Arkham Asylum,
or can I stay in the Silver Lodge?
You've lost me with this one. Is silver lodge a lovecraft thing? If so, you lose 100 sanity points and your face is now full of tentacles.

EDIT: damn, I just participated in the derailing of my own thread. Maybe this topic was more boring than I thought.

Don't worry, you'll wake up and have 60 posts. None will be on topic, but it will be fun.
