Introduction I am a Chartered Educational Psychologist (BPS),who has seen this questionable practice increase exponentially in my thirty year career.I am a member of the International Response Committee to DSM-5 (Blog: http: dsm5response.com) and the DECP Committee of the BPS. Now is the time to challenge doctors in cases where psychologists have ethical concerns about the Emotional Wellbeing of the children with whom they work.This is supported by the Health Professionals Council "Duties as a Registrant."(2009) = "You must not do anything or allow someone else to do something that you may have good reason to believe will put the health or safety of a service user in danger." We all therefore : "HAVE A DUTY OF CARE TO BE AWARE" of these issues in the schools where we work. The National Committees of the Association of Educational Psychologists and the Division od Educational and Child Psychology(A Division of the B.P.S.) actively support raising concern about THE IMPACT OF PSYCHOTROPIC DRUGS ON THE SAFEGUARDING OF CHILDREN. LET'S LIMIT DSM5 in the U.K. "When deceit is so universal, telling the truth is revolutionary,"George Orwell. SAFEGUARDING IS THE KEY ISSUE.
