When will psychiatry lose the couch?

I recently saw yet another cartoon reference to psychiatry. The patient lies on a couch, and a "shrink' who looks like Freud takes notes. Will the media ever register that few psychiatrists practice psychoanalysis now? How can this be when so many view us as pill pushers?

Does the couch help or hurt our image, or does it just confuse and mislead the public?
