really interesting discussion of why all psychotherapies claim spectacular life-changing transformations, but in fact all have ambiguous, slight effects over many years (and why they all seem to become LESS effective in the years after they are invented)
post on therapy books all promising to bring about revolutionary change but all therapies seeming about equally okay in studies. i have many thoughts: 1. what if therapies start out effective but people adapt to them over time
Basically, 'Dodo Bird verdict' but for ideas: book/patient-specific effects.
But gene therapy can get rid of suffering. Completely. #therapy #mentalhealth #transhumanism
