While people with such disorders can possibly benefit from philosophical counseling after or concomitant with psychological counseling, it cannot serve as an alternative or substitute for psychological counseling in such cases. It is therefore important that philosophical counselors develop support and referral networks with psychological counselors as a part of their practices. For example, the philosophical counseling approach of Logic-Based Therapy LBT helps counselees find fallacious premises in the practical reasoning from which they deduce self-defeating conclusions.
Thus, instead of looking for the causal etiology of dysfunctional behavioral and emotional consequences, it focuses on the epistemic justification of beliefs. As such, it takes a humanities perspective, not a social science one. The same may also be said of other philosophical counseling approaches. These approaches characteristically look at the epistemic justification or lack thereof of beliefs, not their underlying causal relationships. They are therefore akin to a Socratic dialogic investigation as distinct from a scientific investigation into the causes and effects of mental processes.
Moreover, since philosophers are trained expressly in the analysis and dissection of logical arguments, they are appropriately trained to engage in such epistemic aspects of philosophical counseling. Indeed, the NPCA strongly encourages and invites such participation by psychological counselors as part of its mission of working cooperatively with psychological counselors.
