I wanted to start a discussion on epistemology and psychotherapy.
Here are two articles that discuss the two:
This article above is very simple. The author discusses how our 'compelling thoughts' may not have as much validity as we originally thought they did once we ask ourselves some questions like 'is it true?'. But the question remains as to whether validity matters to an individual or not.
On The Backwards Epistemology Of Misguided Psychotherapists
I haven't read this article entirely yet, but it seems more difficult. There are some points throughout that could and should be argued against as well. However, it does also emphasize misgivings in psychotherapy.
Anyway, I feel this topic is particularly important me because I want to become a psychiatrist. I also feel that not only does epistemology affect psychotherapy but also morality, ethics, aesthetics and the like. The implications for 'bad' psychotherapy affects not only the individual but also the individual's family, friends and work. It then ultimately affects his or her culture and society.
