My point actually is that if they were sticking to generally applied, already existing, ethical constraints within the field
they would already
not be able to practice, and we actually have
better methods to hand when it comes to counselling, the efficacy of which is, however, still undergoing evaluation in this particular field
They're getting around the rules and muddying the water horribly using out-dated and discredited means, and I loathe that, as those very restrictions on those methods are there for incredibly good reasons
. We don not need to collect evidence on how disastrous some of their methods are with a case-by-case study, as it is already known
and has been demonstrated
Ergo: shut the whole lot down, and stick to other means of counselling, letting only those who volunteer
the now-accepted way (including full disclosure) for experiments have a go. Full stop.
That was what I was getting at.
The means are in place, and this ban will, with luck, shut down the quacks. Or, at least, make 'em quack quieter.
