    It seems entirely framed around the impact it has on physicians and nothing on the patients themselves, barely an administrative concern. It's frankly very narcissistic. This obsession with trauma, especially childhood, is unhinged. Most people did not have a violent or abusive childhood but nobody seems to care about how it invalidates the entire framing or how it's still nothing more than a belief.

    Almost sounds like a rage fest where they will bitch and whine about "those patients" and feel good about having helped (themselves feel better). The whole profession seems to be going off rails, something's seriously wrong here.

    Improving practice here would involve burning the entire concept of psychogenic illness and every peripheral concept down to the tiniest ashes but the opposite is happening. I'd frankly take actual zombie Freud in a locked room over his stupid ideas carrying this much weight so long after his own pipe dreams have ended. What garbage.
