Default Where PT took the wrong turn - followed the wrong sign

This video is in my head now, and the messages in the lectures.

I realize even more clearly that the "education" we get as PTs is a combined cram of stuff into our left hemispheres and clinically a toss into the ocean for the right side: I mean, clinically, we are expected to learn how to deal with live, awake people with biopsychosocial problems of infinite extent, whether inside hospital or outside, usually in pain (and I don't know about the rest of you but I graduated long before we had any sort of good info about that). And no actual left-hemisphere conceptual baskets provided to contain all the biopsychosocial "stuff" we are expected to "manage" (including that which is our own).

What a mess. And it's gotten worse instead of better, with ever more stuffing of the left side and retreat from the right side's ability to see things as a big picture. Or, is it actually starting to turn around, as Keith advised Clark in post 23?
