If psychotherapy was so fabulous, clients would not have paid for scores of visits, even hundreds, without obtaining any tangible results.
According to the Buddhist teachings, promoting psychotherapy is not metta or karuna. Psychotherapy is largely a commercial business enterprise that uses weak methods that result in repeat visits from paying clients. In Buddhism, metta & karuna teaches Dhamma. In AN 9.5, it is said the gift of Dhamma is the greatest gift of benevolence.
I studied Maslow when I was doing a Bachelor of Science in Psychology [academic record posted at bottom]. I do not recall posting Maslow's mundane theory was "non-sense".
Also, I did training in secular "client-centred" counselling, which is basically about acknowledging the feelings of the client and prompting the client to find their own options & solutions. None of this is related to Buddhism, which teaches a defined path of living.
Well, for a non-Buddhist (one who takes refuge in the alien doctrines of outsiders) to infer a Buddhist a liar has no merit in Buddhism.
Not at all. Are you denying most US media, including Hollywood, is owned by Jewish individuals; or deny the reality of this article? You seem to be denying certain Jewish people have a large disproportional influence in the world. What actually makes it worse is not taking refuge in the Triple Gem. The Triple Gem does not include Judaic Apologetics. As Buddhists, we don't fear Yahweh punishing us.
I think it is obvious by your posting history Buddhism and Buddhist practise is not greatly familiar to you; apart from what you have learned from superficial sources. The history of your questions here shows you take more recent cultural "folk" Buddhist teachings as the real Buddhist teachings. My impression is you have devoted most time to studying alien doctrines and possibly want to add Buddhism to your "CV".
The bottom line is the Buddha taught Three Trainings, namely, Morality, Concentration & Wisdom. For lay people, as stated in DN 31, the Buddha generally , for the most part, taught morality. When people truly understand morality, they won't need psychotherapy. All of the psychotherapists will be put out of business by morality.
