To paraphrase and express a hope for shared veto over control:

Might that psychology choose to stay in step with psychiatry via the the
facility with which notions of "disease" and "disorder" enter into
social negotiations IN GENERAL, but be able to be called on to use tools
like PCP in individual cases, sceptical of simplistic diagnostic
narratives, to attempt to explain unwanted behavior for all OTHER kinds
of social support, e.g. agencies of law, etc.?
