American Therapy: The Rise of Psychotherapy in the United States
Jonathan Engel (au)
Begins with Sigmund Freud, who in 1910 brought his nascent movement over from Europe. His techniques laid the groundwork for therapy as we know it today. Engel paints a broad picture of the mental health care landscape in America. He looks at the groups that deliver what is understood as psychotherapy: the efforts of social workers, priests, and pastoral counselors, as well as self-help gurus and support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous. A change in psychotherapy began in the 1970s with the advent of cognitive-behavioral therapy, which brought us into the age of tailored therapeutic interventions. “There is something uniquely American about the way we have taken to therapy as a form of health care and as a kind of self-improvement.”
