Letter to the Editor
Agreement Fell Short
Psychiatric News
Volume 38 Number 8 page 69-69

The work of Barry Perlmen, M.D., president of the New York State Psychiatric Association, and his colleagues on a scope-of-practice bill in New York is to be highly commended, a beacon for all of us (Psychiatric News, January 17).

Although the psychologists agreed not to seek privileges to write medication prescriptions or conduct "invasive procedures," no mention was made of noninvasive procedures. Here, such treatments as light therapy for seasonal affective disorder and the newly evolving rTMS for depression may become areas of contention.
