re Counselling: I used to be quite pro-CBT over counselling, partly because I fell for some of the claims about it being 'evidence based', but also because a CBT model of human beings and mental illness appealed more to my own youthful prejudices. Now I'm much more concerned about the potential for abuse within CBT models... but I'm still concerned that counselling assumes unwarranted expertise from therapists. A lot depends upon the expectations of patients/clients, and the information that they are given before they consent to therapy though. re EBManagment - I was just reading something about Buddhists being concerned about 'Mindfulness' techniques being 'scienced' up in an inappropriate way, and stripped of their moral character. What were supposed to be philosophical approaches focussed upon reducing human suffering and promoting equality and justice are being adapted to provide pliable and docile workers. Personally, I'm not that bothered about what is and is not science!
