APA new guide for treating men, and the usual fallout

Now that the American Psychological Association put out a guide for treating men, there has been the usual tiresome and depressing outcry from people on all sides of the issue, mostly misquoting the published guide.  Rampant in our times!  I posted a similar alert to this kind of sloppy thinking in an exchange between President Trump and NYC Mayor DeBlasio (takes about 8 minutes to watch).

Fortunately for me, I don’t have to make the point because a Washington Post columnist did it so well here.   In a few quick paragraphs she shows how the Guide has been distorted, then clarifies what it does say.  The article ends with a perfect description of the goal of all psychotherapy.
