The fields of neurology and psychology have worked a long time to scientifically identify how the mind works. Unfortunately, much of the “science” of mind has been authoritarian conjecture accepted as fact.
Fortunately, more reasonable heads are prevailing today, which may lead to a complete overhaul of the mental health field in the US over the next decade.
A new model is emerging – centered on evidence and real science rather than on the word of “luminaries” in the field. Perhaps it is time to focus our psychology more on how the mind/brain works than on what is “normal” and “abnormal.”
