    This book highlights the rise and fall of traditional talk therapy The first two chapters go over the beginnings of psychotherapy, starting with Sigmund Freud and moving through the various therapists after him and their contributions to the field These chapters, I thought, were very interesting, as they show how dynamic the field is and how many changes were made throughout its history, steadily getting effective in its methods The next two chapters, three and four, go over the rise of the first anti depressants, the most famous being Prozac starting in the 1980 s, and the introduction of scientifically measurable treatment methods like cognitive behavioral therapy C.B.T The author describes how the first anti depressants like Prozac and Xanax exploded onto the scene, apparently curing depression in people left and right, and making quite a lot of money in the process This leads up to the current situation in America, with most people with depression, or depressive like symptoms, on some sort of medication On top of this, scientifica...

    Saving Talk Therapy attempts to go a step further than books like The Emperor s New Drugs and Comfortably Numb in arguing that not only is the over reliance on psychiatric meds a harm to the psychiatry and psychology fields, but also in that new empirical driven techniques such as CBT cognitive behavioral therapy , DBT dialectical behavioral therapy and ACT acceptance and commitment therapy are also furthering the erosion of benefits of traditional talk therapy.I liked the background given to various types of talk therapy When I hear the words traditional talk therapy I picture Betty Draper lying on the couch with a completely detached man listening and then later telling her husband all about her hysteric condition, all the while not providing her with one microgram of help The author does a good job of explaining the different types of therapy analysis, existential therapy, etc and how they don t all boil down to Betty Draper s unhelpful analysis sessions.I did not find the evidence against CBT, DBT and ACT to be particularly compelling The author mostly uses anecdotes, although he admits that the very reason that CBT and the like have caught on so much is their ability to be empirically tested in research studies It therefore comes as no surprise that there is no evidence to suggest that one method of therapy may be useful...

    Saving Talk Therapy advocates what Freud established as psychotherapy The author is a fan of Freud which anyone in the psychology profession might be But he fails to mention the disservice Freud my have done to psychologically healthy women who were experiencing physical symptoms of hysteria In my opinion as a patient, talk therapy is a very legitimate treatment method However I have participated in both talk therapy and evidence based practices and I have benefited from both Discounting anything other than talk therapy to the psychiat...

    As a therapist, I found this book so validating It was great to read someone else experiencing the same struggles with the mental health system as well as giving some history as to how we got here I would definitely recommend this book for anyone, but I would especially recommend it for therapists.

    I first heard gnaulati on npr s On Point I felt that his defense of traditional insight oriented psychotherapy was spot on I also thought that his critique of the state of affairs in cognitive behavioral therapy was spot on In this text, he continues this argument against vapid and quite limited psychotherapy practices.As a private practitioner who struggles to keep his doors open given the practices outlined in this book, the author does highlight holes and misinformed practices that are governed by insurance companies, many of whom do not possess the expertise to truly understand the impact and manifestation of mental illness Although some might claim that his critique is pejorative or anecdotal, for those of us in practice, he very much speaks to the struggles inherent in giving patients quality care while also being able to earn a living He also highlights how the trending towards Mc treatment and a movement towa...

    Well researched and argued At first I was defensive about his attacks on CBT, which has benefitted me, but as he described how CBT has been reduced to mere impersonal steps and worksheets in many cases like the Kaiser and VA models, I understood his critique My therapists were talk therapists who subtly wove in CBT techniques they let me talk and work through my issues.Having lost my wonderful health insurance, I m now in a plan with limited and rushed mental health ...
