He's Not Talking About Priests...

...but it sure sounds familiar.

The post is called "The Sovietizing of American Therapy" from ShrinkWrapped, the blog of a practicing Psychiatrist/Psychoanalist who lives in upsate New York.

"I often get books on psychology sent to me by publishers, and the other day I received Jeffrey Kottler’s On Being a Therapist. The book is now in its fourth edition, and this latest edition 'puts the spotlight on the therapist’s role and responsibility to promote issues of diversity, social justice, human rights, and systemic changes within the community and the world at large.'”

Whoa: I thought the therapist’s role was to increase the client’s well-being and treat mental illness."

Another h/t Instapundit.
