- Our customers have not yet submitted a review for this title - click here to be the first to write a review
In Psychotherapy and its Discontents, eight distinguished and representative critics of psychotherapy outline their views; and eight psychotherapists offer responses to which the critics then provide rebuttals. The dialogue between these critics and psychotherapists is intended to make clear some of the inevitable areas of misunderstanding and to offer a way forward from any entrenched pro-psychotherapy versus anti-psychotherapy statement into a more ecumenical debate.
