1. although I appreciate your view that children are psychologically uncomplicated, for children who suffer severe trauma or abuse, this is not the case. The methods that are used in raising children who are wards of the state (orphaned from war, disease, parental abandonment, poverty) were first developed after WWI - originally the model was that children could be raised by one or more caretakers, and the individual who fed and cared for them was of no particular importance. Later psychological research indicated that the children who were raised en masse in large orphanages were prone to "antisocial behavior and an inability to form intimate relationships."

The more humane treatment of children today is due directly to the psychological research of that time.

2. I challenge you to find anyone in the helping professions who doesn't have their own personal issues and/or agenda for personal gratification when it comes to helping others. It's really common in the counseling field.

But although I found your assessment of my abilities to be a child psychologist to be relatively insulting, I feel it would serve me to understand why you felt the desire to communicate this information to me? What was the desired end which you wanted to achieve by telling me that you thought I was "too confused" to be a child psychologist and that you "wouldn't want me helping your children"?

Your opinion, granted, but still - was that quite necessary? Isn't that decision up to the board that reviews my licensure application, and the graduate school that accepts my application?

Also...you assume automatically that I plan to practice, but I am the type of person who greatly prefers research. Would my personal issues interfere too much with my ability to do psychological research, and is it the people skills that you are judging? Please do explain.

Thanks in advance for your time.
