We've Had a Hundred Years of Psychotherapy--And the World's Gett

$21.50

A series of dialogs and letters between the authors delves into
psychotherapy's legacy. Although traditional therapy assumes that
healthy individuals make for a healthy world, Hillman ( Blue Fire , LJ
10/1/89) and Ventura ( Shadow Dancing in the U.S.A. , LJ 10/1/85)
contend that 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.
