EP Today – Does Psychiatry reinforce people playing “good patient”?

Today’s Top Tweet!

Today’s Top Tweet (above) points to an issue that demands mature reflection. Instead of the often extreme views presented at web sites like Mad in America or, at the other end of the spectrum, the baffling ideological hegemony of the APA, there is a third stance positioned somewhere between those polarized perspectives.

With regard to today’s tweet, just because someone has a delusion that a drug effectively blocks, it does not necessarily follow that the thing the person was deluded about does not exist.

For example, say a person delusionally thinks that terrorists, the CIA or perhaps the mafia are after them. Then a drug calms the person down and, so it turns out, she or he is never murdered as previously feared.
