link #2 of the day  
From Salon.com, The devil wore J. Crew: "A new book says that sociopaths aren't just Scott Peterson and BTK. They are your neighbors, bosses -- even therapists."
You have one example of a women caught practicing psychology without a license or even a degree, and she did some pretty devastating harm to her patients. She told them that other therapists were lying to them and even sent one man to a locked ward after his therapist had recommended his discharge. How did she react when she was caught?

There was a complete lack of guilt or even embarrassment. After being seriously questioned about it, she walked out of the room as if she had been talking about the weather. She was one of the spookiest people I've ever met.
Salon.com articles are always worth getting a day-pass for.

ETA: Updated with a link because I forgot to post one.

Well, I feel reassured!
I always knew everyone was out to get me!

Too bad they're so liberal.

If you're posting a link, actually post a link. It's only because the subject interests me that I managed to find it at all.

A link was advertised and then never given. That's the (medium-to-small) deal, nothing more.

Sorry! I overlooked the fact that I actually *hadn't* posted a link. Thank you!

Oh my god! My mother has been found out! Actually - that's closer to the truth than I even want to admit. I pondered turning her in for ethical violations at one point. She kept telling us ALL the details of her clients sad neurotic little lives. Over dinner no less. Then she would leave us alone with some of them. Which could be kind of scary - especially when we found out that they weren't just neurotic - that some of them were actually scary and violent! Don't ever practice therapy in your own home when you have teenagers. It's just creepy. Over 30 years later and I am still recovering!
