Why Psychology can Slice the Mind of Your Child (illustrations)
Most people got used to referring to psychology as a reliable tool for solving problems of the nature of our mind and behavior. However, it is far more dangerous than reliable. At least, at this point of human development. And for that reason, any responsible parent should consider how therapy can actually harm his child.
Why psychology is not reliable
Psychology counts more than 500 schools of psychotherapy. Psychology dispersed into many various different directions and concepts. The attitude towards them was different, up to denial. If there were at least one effective theory, everyone would be aware about it and would use it in the same way as the theory of relativity. However, everyone has their own best version of how to conduct a course of therapeutic treatment.
At this stage of human development, psychology does not provide us with highly predictable scientific patterns like physics, chemistry and biology. Let’s use chemistry as an example.
For instance, if we mix sodium chloride it will always give us salt. Whereas in psychology, as a result of “therapy” the mind of one patient may receive “salt” (food product) and the mind of one patient may receive “chloride” (pure poison gas). But we are not able to foresee with equal precision how a person will react if we step on his toe.
Thus, scientific laws always work like a clock. Whereas in psychology, at this stage of the development works like a clock that can always show you a different time. And the reason why psychology is not scientifically reliable is simply because we can’t create a number of people with the same consciousness and conduct experiments to make clear and precise scientific conclusions
Why it May Worsen Mental Health
In case you pay for your child’s therapy session you risk not only by not getting any guarantees of a positive result. You also put at a risk the mental stability of your child. Because appointing your child to a psychotherapist creates a better perspective for him to fall into a psychotic breakdown during the psychological impact on your mind. It may also shape the wrong way of mindset for a child for the rest of his life.
Therefore, sending a child to a psychologist, roughly speaking, will be the same as sending a person with probably (but not clearly) broken arm to a surgeon who can break it even more and leave without criminal or legal charges with the money that you paid for this type of “treatment”. If a therapy session doesn’t work, the child will be appointed to a psychiatrist, whose services are far more expensive.
No Privacy Guarantees
By sending your child to a therapy not only you don’t get any guarantees for a positive result. In addition to the fact that you are risking the psyche of the child, you are also risking his and possibly even your future reputation. Since the results of communication with a psychologist are recorded at least in written format. And furthermore, they can always be archived
As we live in an information society, over time information becomes more and more valuable. Thus, not only your basic information, but primarily your weaknesses may always work for someone who may want to use it against your child.
Considering the fact of constant technological progress, the ability for people to collect and store information will continue to increase throughout the time. That is why you risk not only your child’s privacy, but you also put in danger your privacy and someone else’s. Since your child will talk to a psychologist about his relationship with other people to a stranger.
How to protect your child from the negative impact of a psychologist
There are two options:
· Don’t send your child to the therapist
· If you do go – stay present during the session
Simply said you may be present during the therapy.
If we talk about interactions of your child with school psychologists, you can always write a letter to a principal about your request to exempt your child from conversations with a psychologist. You should also list all sorts of tests, conversations and psychology classes. In exceptional cases, you should always use your right to be present and challenge subjective opinions of psychologists orally and in writing form. But only if you don’t want to risk the mental stability of your child and his future privacy.
