In her 35 years as a therapist, Arlene Drake has never heard so many clients talking about the same issue. Week after week, they complain of panic attacks and insomnia because of President Trump. They’re too anxious to concentrate at work. One woman’s fear turned into intense, physical pain.
“It’s just a nightmare,” said Drake, who practices in West L.A.
Психиатрическая эпидемия. Прессе есть чем гордиться, я считаю. Вогнать полстраны в такую клинику – это достижение. Неизбежным образом, впрочем, виноват все равно сам Трамп:
Over the summer, William Doherty, a professor at the University of Minnesota and a therapist in St. Paul, published a manifesto online declaring Trump a unique threat to America’s mental health. More than 3,800 therapists signed it.
Doherty wrote that Trump’s campaign was creating widespread alienation and fear among Americans. Trump was normalizing behavior that therapists fight to reverse, including “the tendency to blame others in our lives for our personal fears and insecurities,” he said, and “a kind of hyper-masculinity that is antithetical to the examined life and healthy relationships.”
These issues haven’t gone away now that Trump is president, Doherty said. He formed a group last month called Citizen Therapists for Democracy to consider issues raised by Trump’s presidency.
Ну конечно, это его hyper-masculinity всему причиной. Отвык народ, видит мужика и сходит с ума от ужаса.
“It’s almost become irrational in terms of the anger people feel toward each other and the boxes they put each other in”
Исторических масштабов безумие, конечно.
