Don't Be Too Quick to Praise This New Treatment

This is my take on Open Dialogue Treatment in Finland.

If talk therapy was enough to bring a person out of psychosis, then people with schizophrenia would not have been locked up in mental institutions in the 1940s. I bring this up because antipsychotics were not yet discovered in the 1940s, whereas psychotherapy was in use at the time.

I suppose that some might argue that talk therapy has improved since the 1940s.
