Saving talk therapy

Categories: Psychology
In recent decades there has been a decline in the quality and availability of psychotherapy in America that has gone largely unnoticed. The annual number of psychotherapy visits people attend has declined by 20%. About 50% of clients who initiate therapy drop out within the first few visits. Dr. Enrico Gnaulati argues that, whether they are aware of it or not, most people seeking out therapy nowadays are less likely to be availed with a skilled and devoted listener who allows them to talk free-flowingly about past and present sources of emotional suffering. Chances are, instead, they encounter a therapist poised to execute CBT and focus the discussion on thinking errors and eliminating symptoms. Gnaulati ventures into uncharted territory by drawing back the curtains on CBT and showing while it might be effective in the research lab, its findings are of limited generalizability to the complex emotional problems of people in real life situations. Saving Talk Therapy incorporates an abundance of case study and interview material, mixed with cutting-edge research findings, to reveal the factors that have led to the erosion in quality and availability of psychotherapy. In place of our current system, Gnaulati makes a passionate and deeply researched case for in-depth, long-term, personally transformative psychotherapy that incorporates the benefits of evidence-based medicine without overrelying on it.
