Although the ClinPsy male academics on occasion write about resilience they don't appear to appreciate it in person, in the teaching or in critical feedback on their pet projects.

I've been victimised in psychiatric settings but that doesn't make me a victim.
I suppose the DClinPsy training is geared towards working with psychiatric system victims or conscripts, to accepting the status quo and the various theories propagated to justify biological psychiatry and the blaming of Mothers. Eg Attachment Theory, Risk of Relapse, Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). All of these with the aim, in my opinion, of keeping people in their place, as "less than". A hierarchy of needs with Professors at the top and the mentally ill at the bottom of the pile.
Whereas I actually think it's the academics who are the most needy. They need us to depend on them, to feed their egos, to appreciate their beneficence and to know our place.
