I can't agree. Psychology is in a turf war with medicine and most of the social sciences for the dubious honor of being seen as the new secular priestly caste.

It resembles nothing more than the medieval church with different sects and schools fighting each other to promote their version of "the truth"

Not very many of psychology's findings are reproducible and not very many pass Poppers falsification test. Psychology doesn't seem to be medical or scientific, psychologists themselves cannot be struck off a medical register as psychiatrists can, all that will happen is that they will get thrown out of their various seats of learning.

All they have to do then is to rebrand themselves as "counsellors" or "life coaches" and carry on regardless. Anyone can call themselves councellors and start practicing as one, even if they are straight out of prison.
