Continuing the discussion from Schizophrenic Skits:
From Caroline C"It made me sad that the teacher set this up where the students would laugh at the “schizophrenics.” If she had done something truly educational, the students wouldn’t have been lauging at them. And this teacher has a Ph.D. in psychololgy. They let people graduate being so ignorant."
Ph.D’s bother me as well. I would love too meet a kind one. Maybe someday I will. They don’t want a discussion on how to actually help. They want to pontificate their superior knowledge.
One of my hospitalizations when I was 20 there was a Ph.D expert who crossed our path.
A few of my family and my 9 year old sister were in the room with this “EXPERT” and he laid into my sis about “expressed emotion” and her lack of knowledge and how her actions will trigger me and land me in hospital forever and ever.
It really scared the hell out of her to where she would actually tell people she was feeling neutral she had nothing to express. She would be afraid to say any opinion about anything because she was afraid to express emotion. It took a lot of child therapy for her to undo the gift of that Ph.D. expert.
The Ph.D. expert didn’t have the brains enough to realize not to lay into a little kid about a concept that even some adults don’t understand. Would a “lesser” educated person know better then to berate a 9 year old for her lack of knowledge and know better then to scare a child? I think so.
Just because the letter P.h. D is attached to someone… it doesn’t mean they are a good or caring person.
