Now, we are all in it together. With APA’s publication of DSM, we have sealed the fate of generations of sufferers. Our patients are nothing but bags of chemicals to which we are to add the ones that will correct the "chemical imbalance." In many years of public clinic work, I have seen "treatment" reduced to a cookbook counting of behavioral symptoms. Of course, as the psychiatrist on the team, it was my job to dish out pills. I was never able to extinguish my real Self completely as a psychiatrist (and as a human being). Over and over, patients told me how important it was to them that I listened. Empathy was clearly what made my EBM-driven choice of pills work.
