Social Workers Venerated

May 29, 2007 permalink

Pending legislation, bill 171, the Health System Improvements Act, 2007 will allow persons now qualified to be called "social workers" to also use the titles psychotherapist or registered mental health therapist. The relevant sections are in Schedule Q. Soon the professionals who snatch a baby from a mother in the delivery room will have more venerated titles than the physicians who spent years in university learning how to safely deliver babies. A reader points out that supporter George Smitherman could have been the target of mental health therapy himself when homosexuality was still treated as a disease.
