Would they let someone out of a psychiatric hospital who clearly needs to stay in because they are a danger to themselves and others? Or are they manipulated that easily into believing that their patient is “okay” when they say they are? Granted they can’t read minds, but look for the signs and do more counseling before you send them off after such a short amount of time.
People need to do their jobs correctly. It is really upsetting. Or maybe it’s not their fault. Perhaps that’s just how the system works.
I think I want to stick to experimental psychology, I don’t want to be someone’s shrink or be responsible for people’s lives. I’d rather work with rats.
