Premature psych conclusions, and harm from misdiagnosis

Peggy makes a good point.

Coming at this as a psychologist, I find myself wondering how and to what
degree physicians are trained in psychology. In my work on care delivery
teams, I have encountered physicians who discounted the legitimacy of
psychology as a field of inquiry, while at the same time misapplying
psychological principles when evaluating patients. This frequently resulted
in disaster for the patients.
