Desiring Psychological Diagnosis

"In promoting [a] fantasy of normality, the Psychology Industry forces people to consider themselves psychologically disabled. When once people were ashamed of being diagnosed, many are now eager and willing, provided that the label (1) explains and justifies their problems and behaviors, leaving them with little or no sense of guilt or responsibility, and (2) is socially acceptable, making them feel special and understood without feeling stigmatized."

Dr. Tana Dineen in, “Manufacturing Victims: What the Psychology Industry is Doing to People,” p. 162
