Why did I discontinue my psychology studies?

A few people have asked: “Alfredo, you used to have many high distinctions and you already had two degrees, one with Honors in Sociology, so why did you decide to discontinue your studies at your third year of psychology?

To answer this question as best as possible I let a psychology speak in this uTube film. However, I must stress that I have many friends that are psychologists and their work is outstanding and I fully support what they do. I am also very supportive of many organizations, universities and Health Centers such as the Kidman Centre.

I am not opposed to psychology as a profession. I am only concerned about the direction that our society has taken and that is towards a biological understanding of mental disorders with disregard or neglect of  the bio-psycho-social model which is the one that we should be using.  This means that we should focus on biological, social and psychological aspects of a person’s disorder keeping in mind that psychology means the study of the mind not just the study of the biological human body at the expense of all else. .
