In Their Own Image: Psychiatry’s Attack on Religion (with commentary)

Scientologist Wayne Hanson’s blog on STAND (Scientologists Taking Action Against Discrimination) on Psychiatry’s undermining of spirituality: it’s frontal attack on religion.

Opinion – Another extremist and slightly vague article from anti-psychiatry. It’s too bad the author doesn’t take a bit more care, because the article does provide some useful information. But it’s too one-sided for my liking.

So I link to the above with the following correction. Psychiatry does accept major religions. Where it may fall short, however, is with individual spiritualities.

I discuss this here: https://epages.wordpress.com/2018/07/25/study-discuss-religion-spirituality-when-treating-young-adults-with-severe-mental-illness-media-communications-baylor-university/

  1. I feel psychology forgets it’s not sociology, or some other broader or population based field of study. It is meant to aim at idiosyncracies first, not purely generalizations that explain idiosyncracies.
