The author focuses on the failure to use good practice as one example of a sin of omission. He emphasizes the importance for the International Center for the Study of Psychiatry and Psychology to continue to represent the conscience of the whole. He notes that the profession tends to neglect and refuse using existing practices in solving problems in favor of searching for new practices. He suggests to the profession to examine why proven practices are neglected.
