Evidence-Based vs. Evidence-Informed...and some of our heroes

Interesting.

 

But then I watched a lecture by two psychiatrists and researchers who went through Kirsch’s work and pointed out a few significant problems with it. Kirsch argued that antidepressants don’t work for people with mild or moderate depression. However, he misclassified mild, moderate, and severe symptoms as mild, moderate, and severe depression, when, by definition, a person must have severe symptoms in order to be diagnosed with depression at all (if you only have a few severe symptoms, you would be diagnosed with mild depression).

 

 

The author is astoundingly naive to think psychiatric diagnosis of any level of depression is accurate.

I would like to know what was learned to be untrue that had been believed. 

I wonder if Robert has had a look at this he deserves a chance to reply.

I know, right? Thank you! About as scientific as one of those quizzes in a magazine.  Yep, that's a medical diagnosis, all right.
