The Baby and the Bathwater: 'Professionalisation' in Psychotherapy and Counselling.
Totton, Nick
British Journal of Guidance and Counselling, v27 n3 p313-24 Aug 1999
Draws parallels between the rush to professionalization and the process of psychoanalysis in the United States in earlier decades. Offers account of what is happening in terms of the sociology of the counseling profession and suggests that expert systems are being substituted for local knowledge. Considers and rejects argument that this process is for "the good of the client." (Author/JDM)
