From the Couch to the Crib

Infant psychotherapy is on the rise (HT: Jeff Burton):
A widely used mental health and development diagnostic manual for infants was revised last year for the first time since 1994 to include two new subsets of depression, five new subsets of anxiety disorders (including separation anxiety and social anxiety disorders) and six new subsets of feeding behavior disorders (including sensory food aversions and infantile anorexia).
Can fruit-flavored, infant-formula antidepressants be too far off?

What a load of rubbish. Sounds more like the psycologists are making up ways to keep their jobs.
