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.”
