Watching fictional therapists on TV

It really upsets me to see that TV therapists are always portrayed to be uptight and unpleasant people whose only interest is to make a character feel bad about their lives and cry about their childhood.

And why is it always a psychiatrist on TV? Does no one in entertainment know how outdated the therapy-giving-psychiatrist is? Hell, a good portion of entertainment workers get therapy on a regular basis, don’t they know the difference? Where are the Psychologists, the MFTs, the Social Workers and the LPCCs? 

Ever since I started grad school, I’ve watched (scripted and “reality”) TV therapists act in ways a true therapist NEVER would: creating dual relationships, breaking confidentiality and unethical decision-making, just to name a few. 

These uneducated and ignorant depictions of therapists on TV only fuels the negative stigma of therapy and minimizes the hard work we do to provide and promote mental health to those who seek treatment. 

Perhaps I should think about becoming a part-time TV writer to make sure our people are represented accurately. Who’s with me? ;0)

  • Nick: A lot of you have been hearing the public complaining about a lack of diversity in the Avengers.
  • Tony: What in the hell’s diversity?
  • Clint: Well, I could be wrong, but I believe diversity is an old, old wooden ship that was used during the medieval era.
  • Nick: Barton, I would be surprised if the public was concerned about the lack of an old, old wooden ship, but nice try.
