My husband started seeing a psychologist at the recommendation of his doctor. He has a diagnosis of ADD and depression, and was recently fired from his job. He has trouble knowing what is appropriate, and he has trouble getting along with his co-workers because he misinterprets their cues. We were hoping the therapist could help him identify problems and come up with strategies. Instead, she said, "Why do you need to change? Why not be different?" (Um, hello! He's had problems at his last four jobs, and now our family of four has no income!!)
A few years ago we took our DD (2 1/2 then, adopted at birth and exposed to drugs in-utero) to a ped. psychologist. That dr. said that prenatal drug abuse doesn't matter if they don't continue to live with the parent who uses.
I don't believe all psychologists are goofballs, but that's all I've run into here. Anyone else have this problem?
