Description
 
Edward Dolnick (au). Tells the compelling tale of the golden age of “talk therapy”, the 1950s & 1960s, when psychotherapists saw no limit to what they could do, & set out to conquer mental illness. This is the tragic story of that confrontation. He focuses on 3 battles: against schizophrenia, autism, & obsessive-compulsive disorder. Psychoanalysts achieved the worst of outcomes. The message they delivered to countless families was that parents themselves -- through their subtle hostility -- had driven their children mad. Dolnick uses the voices of therapists as well as those of patients & their loved ones to describe the controversial methods used to treat the mentally ill, & their heartbreaking consequences.
