Short report

A dangerous psychiatry in bloom

J.A.M. de Kroon

During the last decades, a naturalistic psychiatry has been outlined. In this article the dangers of such a psychiatry are described. A subjectless psychiatry in which a one-dimensial concept of disease dominates is a psychiatry that derogates patients. This kind of psychiatric practice loses the predicate 'anthropological' and is a pseudo-scientific monster.
