    "Primal scream therapy" is listed as a risk factor for Mallory-Weiss tear. :laugh:

    Does anybody really do that anymore? I thought that was a hippie thing.

    That's just ridiculous. Might as well say, "circus sword-swallowers are at increased risk for mallory-weiss tear."

    I knew somebody whose patient on the unit engaged in a "primal scream" in the MD's face after being turned down for a pass, that prompted another one of her patients to slug him in the mouth. I think that was the end of his therapeutic screaming.

    I think some colleges do it before finals week. I think Swarthmore? But that isn't really intended as therapy.
