Since then, because of increased public awareness and due to a number of scandals in the field of psychology, this article's position has moved substantially toward being the prevailing view among scientifically educated people, including Allen Frances, chair of the DSM-IV task force, who has recently written a book that makes the same points made here, and Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, who has begun to take a similar view of the scientific standing of psychiatry and psychology. With respect to the DSM, one of this article's topics, Frances recommends that people no longer use or teach this "Bible" of psychological practice, while Insel and the NIMH intend to phase out the DSM by developing alternative diagnostic and treatment methods based on biological causes rather than psychological symptoms. Because this article is directed toward educated nonspecialist readers considering psychological treatment, students of psychology are cautioned that terms such as "psychology," "clinical psychology" and "psychiatry" are used interchangeably, on the ground that they rely on the field of human psychology for validation, in the same way that astronomy and particle physics, though very different, rely on physics for validation. The field of human psychology is a powerful force in modern society, and its influence is widespread — in language, law, the social contract, and in our perception of ourselves.
