I am a psychologist who doesn’t believe in psychology. My two primary reasons for not believing in psychology are…
Not one psychological theory concerning the nature of human beings has been verified by research and most, in fact, have been conclusively dis-verified.
The profession of psychology may be the most atheistic profession in the USA.
In my “been there, done that” view, a person who does not believe in the God of Judeo-Christian scripture cannot possibly properly understand human beings—His ultimate purpose in creating the universe—and is not, therefore, competent to render competent counsel to a human being. Properly understanding what makes human beings “tick” requires a biblical worldview.
That is confirmed by the FACT that no compelling evidence exists that verifies the reliable efficacy of any form of psychological therapy. The truth of both of the above statements is corroborated by the FACT that since American parents began taking their marching orders from people in the mental health professions, the mental health of children has been in an uninterrupted nosedive. The mental health of today’s kids, compared with kids who were raised in the 1950s and early ‘60s, is a whopping ten times worse, and that is a conservative estimate.
During this same period of time, the per-capita number of child mental health specialists of various titles has increased exponentially. More mental health professionals per child, worse child and teen mental health. Ponder that conundrum.
The inexorable conclusion to be drawn from the FACTS is that mental health professionals don’t really know what they are talking about. Like yours truly, they all wasted several years of their lives in graduate school programs that taught them nothing of value and, furthermore, ensured that they would do more damage than good.
Because they don’t know what they are talking about, operate on the basis of wrong theories, and deny the truth of God, mental health professionals who specialize in working with children and teens have taken to dispensing bogus diagnoses and supervising children’s responses to pharmaceuticals that, without exception, have never reliably outperformed placebos in controlled clinical trials. That approach allows them to deny responsibility when a child fails to get better while under their “care.” According to the stock narrative, said child simply needs a different medication or a different dosage.
If the above doesn’t describe a scam, I don’t know what would. Tell a psychologist that he’s part of a carefully scripted and orchestrated rip-off involving Big Pharma and he/she will likely go ballistic. When they calm down, ask them to cough up verifiable evidence that contradicts anything I’ve said thus far. They can’t. All they can do is say things like, “Rosemond’s opinions are not shared by a consensus of people in the field of psychology.”
I wholeheartedly agree with that, by the way.
