I met with some therapists years ago as I was struggling to concentrate at work. All they did was listen to me, wrote some notes and told me to come back the following week. This continued for months with two separate therapists. No coping mechanisms offered; no books suggested for self-improvement; no active engagement. Ambivalent. Radio. Silence.

This continued for months before I gave up and realized I was wasting time from both of our lives and my co-pays.

After sharing this with other people, they noted that their therapists generally did the same thing. Is what I described an appropriate approach of a therapist as supported by the APA?

Your book's promotional material mentions, "The dealers, the shooters, the gangsters and the paedophiles; they need to fall by any means." Is supply-side throttling the best way to counter drug-addiction in communities? What about the legalisation or drugs and some public health options to help people deal with addiction and/or emotional problems?

Within the past 20 years have practitioners in your field begun considering the connection between gastrointestinal health and neurotransmitters (epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine and serotonin)?

If a patient is diagnosed with a mood disorder, do you think doctors should consider improving gastrointestinal health as part of a patient's therapy or is this a red herring?

Edit: added word "mood".

As a police officer, when you look at gun ownership law in the United States, do you think that this ultimately helps people defend themselves against threats or does it create a more dangerous environment? If you lived in the US as a civilian, do you think you would purchase a gun for the protection of yourself or loved ones?
