    Interesting indeed. I am tempted to say not so much a dark underbelly as the whole spectre of a pink elephant in the room.

    As a result of psychotherapy one member of our family was led to believe that her parents were wicked and she never spoke fondly to them again until they died. That is real damage. Not just to the patient but to everyone around. I fear the author does not get the fact that the whole business is nosy parking based on less than the human charity that would be there otherwise.
