Computer Psychotherapy

Computer Psychotherapy
   If the Computer Can Be Used to Treat Mental Suffering, Then There Is No Question of Its Value
   It is dehumanizing to herd thousands of patients into mental hospitals where they will never see a doctor. . . . If a computer can provide therapeutic conversation, then there can be no hesitation in exploring these potentials. It may give us a chance to rehumanize people now being dehumanized by our . . . psychiatric systems. (Colby, quoted in Hand, 1985, pp. 9-10)
