Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
"Therapy's Delusions" is the second critique of the mental health community by the same two authors. The first book, "Making Monsters" was a well-defined argument regarding a specific issue (sexual abuse) and how the psychological community, specifically unqualified therapists, had become negatively influenced by cultural myths and fears.
"Therapy's Delusions" is their attempt to critique the entire field of psychology, or what they refer to as "talk therapy". The argument is overgeneralized and not well-defined. There are many forms of therapy, a multitude of illnesses and many different types of therapists. The authors do not attempt to explain differences, but rather make blanket statements which are often inaccurate and are used to mislead the reader. For example, they discuss the 'myth of the unconcious' and 'psychoanalysis' as if they are an integral part of the current treatment of mental illnesses... which, in reality, may be considered historical ideas and for the majority of clinicians are not a significant part of treatment of major mental illnesses in the late 1990's.
While the authors make very compelling statements that incite anger towards the mental health community (e.g., the need for scientific research rather than just 'intuition'), their logic and argument is so generalized that it is unclear where the anger could be most effectively directed to cause change. For example, they discuss the merits of understanding the biological underpinnings of mental illness & the necessicity of rehabilitation therapy. They refer to these as if they have found the panacea for "cures".

Von Ein Kunde am 1. August 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is an important, well written, well argued, and devastating critique of psychotherapy. If it's wrong, the points made need careful refuting. If it's right, it's a substantive contribution to better understanding how we think and should have consequences in the worlds of medicine and law.
It's curious that there've been no reviews of "Therapy's Delusions" yet in amazon.com. This is a highly charged issue and I'd expected to see a lively debate here. Perhaps this review will encourage (incite?) submissions.
My short version of the basic premise is that people do not always think rationally, that we can be influenced by others to believe things that are simply false (actually, of course, we don't need others for this), and that this is much of what goes on in the forms of therapy they critique.
They have gotten ahold of an important idea and are continuing to make very good use of it. Ofshe and Watters have previously written a book alleging serious damage done by advocates of recovered memories. "Therapy's Delusions" is a continuation of the arguments raised in their "Making Monsters". Also, not mentioned in "Therapy's Delusions" is work done by Ofshe in finding and freeing people convicted of crimes they confessed to but did not commit; this is basically the same premise applied to another field.
One criticism: Ofshe and Watters use modern medicine as their example for how to go about doing things right. They have too high a regard for its accountability and capabilities. There are studies suggesting that medical malpractice kills about 100,000 people a year in this country.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book forced me to rethink many ideas about psychotherapy and even 20th Century culture. Calling for increased accountability for psychotherapists, the authors document how psychotherapeutic techniques have damaged mentally ill individuals. They also present the process of psychotherapy as one of manipulation and delusion - storytelling that deliberately encourages the confusion of fiction with fact.
A critique focused on behalf of mentally ill and so-called "walking worried" individuals, Therapy's Delusions may prove difficult for functional people in crises (the walking wounded?) who need no reminder of the complexities of the human mind. Compelling, and challenging to many 20th Century assumptions, the book raises fascinating questions, for example whether it's a fool's game for humans to even attempt to understand themselves.
