Gary Bakker is a clinical psychologist. He has been obsessed with evidence-based psychotherapy for 40 years, so don’t bother asking him about hypnotherapy, psychoanalysis, past life regression therapy, or any of the 500+ other psychological therapies that have no controlled outcome study support behind them whatsoever. Engineers aren’t allowed to make up bridge designs as they go along, so why can psychotherapists?
Although recently retired from clinical practice, Gary still teaches at the University of Tasmania and writes books and articles in both the skeptical and clinical psychological such as: God: A Psychological Assessment, and Nine evidence-based guidelines for a ‘good life’.
