Listening to the interview with Dr. Langer was shocking to me. All she was discussing, in fact, was simply the concepts of mental discipline and maturity. Her condescending, sanctimonious, and insulting perspective about individuals who feel stress is so ridiculous that I felt embarrassed that Ms. Tippett would conduct such an interview. Certainly, I was considered there were no real challenging questions regarding the simpleton nature of Dr. Langer's theories.

I felt like I was listening to a snake oil salesperson trying to claim that their approach was the solution for all problems.

If I heard correctly that the APA views Langer's approach as significant, then it sets back the reputation of psychological studies.
