The American Psychiatric Association.
Is coming up with their latest edition of -- diagnostic manual.
And you say that they're coming up with all of these new diagnoses.
And eliminating some others.
All for financial reasons to get billing codes and that -- for for PC reasons as well please explain.
-- -- it gives me no pleasure to say this about the American Psychiatric Association however.
When you start creating disorders by committee great groups of psychiatrist getting together in Washington or Virginia.
And saying let's create new diagnoses.
Grief is going to be in -- disorder.
-- -- -- -- -- You have to start thinking now why would they be adding terms like that -- there.
Diagnostic and statistical manual by the way version five minute phone number one if you keep coming -- -- versions.
You sell millions of dollars worth of books.
Literally millions because every psychiatrist psychologist and psychiatric social worker has to have the DSM five -- all the pillars and all the pillars and not only that but if you were wondering as a guild as the American Psychiatric Association might.
How are we going to build blue cross blue shield for grief well now it's diagnosis the real one point 75 acts.
You know and now you have -- billing code associated with it this though isn't the truth suing distances the profession.
From its real roots in understanding and empathy.
Tell me about your life and why you're grieving let's get to the bottom of it.
Instead to label it and then of course because the APA has a history of getting into bed with pharmaceutical companies.

Forget talking about that just take this medicine for -- and let us bill.
-- psychiatrist can make about three times as much if they see people -- ten minute intervals and write prescriptions every ten minutes and then as opposed to talking to them about their life stories.
The AP presided over the decimation of the talking cure in psychiatry we have to get back -- -- we have to get back to truth.
And similarly they can't go in cherry pick and take out diagnoses.
Do you know that the -- PA says and they took it out.
You severe diagnosis ego just tonic homosexuality.

You don't want to express them you consider them other that of course would seem to be a psychological problem.
Politically they felt that was untenable so they get out the what liquid Paper of the correction fluid and -- it comes from the diagnostic manual.
What kind of sciences this can you imagine endocrinologist.

And have you seen this in the field.
No it's long and tested.
Trials and data that established diabetes.
I don't think we should be inventing a nomenclature and.
You tell -- what -- what happens the EPA comes up with these new diagnoses and labels and is there any.
Any any thing that happens after that that has to be voted on or Bloomberg well.
It's like committee and the committee has to assent to this and there is a lot of discord about this because they think psychiatrists are not getting the feeling like wait a second.
We've already lost some credibility.
Because certain antidepressants for instance stacked up kind of well equal to placebos but and but that's it right yeah.
