Attempting to reduce available support for the "life project" seems to be going entirely the wrong way. Concerns that arise regarding the process should be engaged in a kinder and structurally competent way.

Thank you, Srp, for bringing forward the issue of the "APA guidelines." In the present period, we face a pattern of dysfunctional and reductive "solutions" to structural concerns, so there comes forward the responsibility to work for an institutional shift that would support adequate guidelines.
