How would you describe? The current state of treating successfully or unsuccessfully or anywhere in between trauma. What is the current standard of care? And what do you make of some of the tools in the tool kit? The short answer to the question is by and large abysmal and I think that's not because you're the people into helping rolls don't want to do their jobs or are capable of doing their jobs, but we've evolved a system. That pervez Mental Health Care largely without attention to the actual human being and this is a huge problem. If you think about the shortening of visits, I mean, how much can you really talk about who you are, or what's going on in you? In the kind of brief often rushed and infrequent appointments that we have in our health system, and an over-reliance on medicines, which leads to a Dime, that just wants to basically take a symptom inventory, rice. It will tell me an inventory of your, of your symptoms. And I used to say this, sometimes when I was teaching where I would give an inventory of symptoms of a person who had a rock in your shoe and then often at the other end of that would be like, what do you think is going on? And and people have to take attention deficit disorder because you know, the person is not paying attention to things or distractible. But if we just take symptoms, like we will get it wrong. Do you? Yeah, it will get it wrong, a lot and getting it wrong. Is it benign? It's just it's not that. Oh no. Help is given because we got it wrong. No, it's actually that harm is done and the symptom inventory, you know, make a diagnosis or several diagnosis and then throw by and large medicines that the diagnosis just doesn't work. And what we end up doing is like so much in the American Healthcare System. We spend so much but we are at the bottom in terms of it at industrialized. He's of outcomes. And that's because we waste so many Resources by not looking in depth at the actual problems. And I think we do a very poor job at identifying and processing. Trauma, for all of those reasons.
