Recently I was in the mid-west for a seminar.  While I was preparing for the day, I picked up the morning paper.  My eyes glanced across an interesting disclaimer written over the daily horoscope--"NOTE: Horoscopes have no basis in scientific fact and should be read for entertainment, not for guidance." If only the same could be provided to those who wander into the regressionist's office.  "WARNING: Regression beliefs and practices have no basis in scientific fact and should not be confused with legitimate psychotherapy.  There is no demonstrated improvement for regression patients and treatment has no recognized point of termination.  If you choose to proceed you should expect to lose your mental health, grasp of reality, immediate and extended family, your career, life savings, and possibly kill yourself."
