Psychologist: Psychotherapists who attempt to provide psychotherapy on radio or television talk shows are expected to do so in ways that entertain a broad audience. However, satisfying this demand is nearly always incompatible with providing high-quality psychological help. For this reason, psychotherapists should never provide psychotherapy on talk shows.

Which one of the following principles must be assumed in order for the psychologist’s conclusion to be properly drawn?


(A) It is never appropriate for psychotherapists to attempt to entertain a broad audience.

(B) The context in which psychological help is presented has a greater impact on its quality than the nature of the advice that is given.

(C) Psychotherapy should never be provided in a context in which there is any chance that the therapy might be of less than high quality.

(D) Most members of radio and television talk show audiences are seeking entertainment rather than high-quality psychological help.

(E) Psychotherapists should never attempt to provide psychological help in a manner that makes it unlikely to be of high quality

Psychologist: Psychotherapists who attempt to provide psychotherapy on radio or television talk shows are expected to do so in ways that entertain a broad audience.

However, satisfying this demand is nearly always incompatible with providing high-quality psychological help.

For this reason, psychotherapists should never provide psychotherapy on talk shows.

Concl : psychotherapists should never provide psychotherapy on talk shows.

Basis of Concl : satisfying this demand (entertain a broad audience) is nearly always incompatible with providing high-quality psychological help

The argument is:
Because psychotherapy with an element of entertainment is incompatible with high quality psychological help, psychotherapists should never provide psychotherapy on talk shows.

Assumption : Psychotherapists should always provide high quality psychological help

IMO E

The confusion is certainly between C and E.However ,I believe the correct answer should be E. And Y not C? Because while coming down to the assumption,we should always think on a broader perspective and therefore skipping minor details.As in the question,the concern is more on the high quality of the psychological help rather than the means like talk shows or radio or any other mode which compromises on the same. C has narrower scope than E.
Hope it helps :)

Prethinking:psychologists must almost always provide high-quality psychological help

Well I guess the answer to this is a straight E.

Conclusion: PSYCHOTHERAPISTS should not provide psychotherapy on talk shows...(but maybe some other person...some amateur who boasts of some knowledge on this subject can provide the therapy on talk shows....perhaps my best friend's great old grandpa who drew many people from his neighborhood for his ready-at-home psychotherapeutic treatments can go on a talk show and provide pschotherapy :-D )..

To sum up, the essence of the conclusion lies in identifying that the focus is on the PSYCHOTHERAPISTS providing/not providing psychotherapy on talk shows SUBJECT to some underlying principles AND NOT PSCHOTHERAPY BEING PROVIDED/NOT PROVIDED on talk shows. E states the former, while C states the latter. The conclusion never states in any manner whatsoever whether the action of providing psychotherapy is under scrutiny. It is the person who is offering psychotherapy who is under scrutiny.

Hence, E emerges as the clear winner as against C.

The arguments assumes that a psychotherapist tends to provide high-quality help, and they should not do so when the demand cannot be met with the same.
While A, B and D are clearly out! Between C & E, C mentions a slight probability or "any chance" of deviation from high-quality while E talks about situation where it is unlikely to maintain high-quality.

(A) It is never appropriate for psychotherapists to attempt to entertain a broad audience. ==> Too generic

(B) The context in which psychological help is presented has a greater impact on its quality than the nature of the advice that is given. ==> Not talking about any context or its importance

(C) Psychotherapy should never be provided in a context in which there is any chance that the therapy might be of less than high quality. ==> First line of argument talks about "Psychotherapists who attempt" and even the restriction is on Psychotherapists, but not on delivering the Psychotehrapy.

(D) Most members of radio and television talk show audiences are seeking entertainment rather than high-quality psychological help.

(E) Psychotherapists should never attempt to provide psychological help in a manner that makes it unlikely to be of high quality ==> Clearly combines the thoughts that Psychotherapists should not give sessions on media where in the session quality will not be of high quality.

Hope it helps

Could someone fix the format of this CR? The way it is currently displayed makes it pretty hard to read the answer choices.
