I'm not sure why this is considered psychology.

I can dig it.

A tip for the Idries Shah Foundation - If you don't want people to perceive your organization as a cult don't name the organization after your charismatic leader.

Mostly today it is giving psychoactive drugs, with diminishing returns, to benefit the drug industry, instead of patients.

The OP was specifically titled, pre-modern ;-(

That's technically psychiatry, not psychology.

Some psychologists buy into it but a fair few are critical of that system. More than psychiatrists are, at least.

Psychologists also do research and so on where psychiatrists just meet with pharma reps and then advertise whatever drugs were brought up to their customers patients.

Pharma rules too much.  Time to set them back a bit.  The next time a Dr offers you anything for free, it is a Pharma promotion.  Ask questions, demand doctors refuse samples...
