A kind of malpractice in psychiatry: ignoring of the interpersonal relationship A kind of psychiatric practice, defined as a form of malpractice and centered only on the prescription of medication, is described and critically discussed. This kind of psychiatric practice is considered to be antiscientific because it ignores research data that show evidence of the importance of the interpersonal relationship with the patient for therapeutic outcome. Two brief clinical cases are reported as examples of this form of malpractice, and research data on the cost-effectiveness of psychotherapy of personality disorders are reported. Finally, some historical and sociological considerations that can explain the diffusion of such psychiatric practice, mostly based on the sole prescription of medication, are discussed. [KEY WORDS: psychiatric practice, malpractice, patient-therapistrelationship, psychotherapy, psychiatric medication]
