IPTC INFO
CaptionWe've Had a Hundred Years of Psychotherapy--And the World's Getting Worse Paperback by James Hillman Michael Ventura _________________________________________________ Outstanding poke at traditional psychotherapy and its habit of cloistering itself in the consulting room. Hillman and Ventura make their rambling imaginative caustic and wonderfully spontaneous case for the inefficiency of a psychology establishment that pretends to change the world one person at a time.in effect robbing them of the very symptoms that might prompt some effective action political and otherwise.---Craig Chalquist PhD Bay Area CA USA--- ********* James deserves applause for the depth of his scholarship and the power of his penetrating insight. He grapples with the confusions that the therapeutic movement has caused to our culture. Bravo for this critique. We need a cultural critique and we need to understand and hold the psychotherapeutic movement up for examination. ********* Therapy encourages self-preoccupation leaving no attention or energy for the woes of the outside world. Similarly the "inner child" movement has created a population of self-centered juvenile adults who feel they have little power. Political apathy a dying environment and an inability to form real relationships are among the ills resulting from this solipsism. Hillman who studied with Jung and L.A. Weekly columnist Ventura offer no solutions but their book bursts with vigorous ideas tangents and humor. Thought-provoking fun and not quite like anything else on the shelf. Recommended for public and academic libraries. - Maureen R. Shields New City Lib. N.Y. _________________________________________________ # Paperback: 256 pages # Publisher: HarperSanFrancisco; Reprint edition May 14 1993 # Language: English # ISBN: 0062506617
