It is far too soon to lay down clinical guidelines for the generic management of some of the common clinical problems. Standardized treatment programs are superficial, reducing the physician's therapeutic armamentarium, inhibiting the delicate admixture of experience and sensitivity, reducing the therapist to a mechanic, and denying our basic understanding of the nature of man. Quality care acknowledges individual differences as more important than similarities. Profiles of psychiatrists' patterns of practice do not reflect the dynamics of patient/therapist fit, ignore the "personal equation", and are heedless of the intricacies of clinical judgement.
