I personally do not think that the words of Dr. Thomas Szasz are correct. Just because there is not a physical symptom does not mean that there is a real illness or disease that could be going on. I would make depression an example of something that is very real with no physical symptom.
Credible and experienced psychiatrists should not join the movement started by Dr. Thomas Szasz because he was full of crazy ideas. Szasz should not be followed by anyone with mental capacity because his ideas flew in the face of the creators of psychology. His ideas were wrong and came without evidence.
There is so much good that psychiatry has done for the mentally ill in the world, especially leading to the mass deinstitutionalization of people in the US and creation of ways to manage the more severe mental illnesses. Still, there are some doctors who set the discipline back, and should be ignored.
Psychiatrists should not join the movement started by Dr. Thomas Szasz. His views and opinions are not what the others should follow because some of his methods are wrong and not of value. He has ideas that are unfounded and do not work on everybody. I think psychiatrists should continue to use their own methods.
The movement started by Dr. Thomas Szasz should not be followed by other psychiatrists because his ideas are unfounded. Szasz could cause many far-reaching and negative results if people choose to follow his principles. With that in mind, no psychiatrist should follow his methods. They run the risk of messing up a lot of people.
