Publisher's Summary

Throughout its history, the practice of psychotherapy has both reflected and shaped cultural assumptions about the nature of self and society. How does this "culture of therapy" interact with Christianity? In these thought-provoking interviews, Paul McHugh, John Steadman Rice, and Richard Noll talk about Christianity in relation to therapy, discussing the phenomena of False Memory Syndrome, codependence, New Age spirituality, and addiction.


Audible Editor Reviews

I'm recommending this title because I found it extremely thought-provoking and thorough - not because I agreed with any of the interviewees. This is the type of program that will definitely encourage you to question your views on therapy, culture, and religion - in particular, it urges an examination of the way our values are formed in a social context, not in a vacuum. Each of the interviewees is a skeptic about concepts we often take for granted, whether they be recovered memories of sexual abuse or the ideas of Carl Jung. This program gave me a clear understanding of this skepticism - and allowed me to solidify my own opinions. (Carol)
