Making monsters : false memories, psychotherapy, and sexual hysteria by Richard Ofshe( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now the Pulitzer Prize-winning social psychologist Richard Ofshe and Mother Jones writer Ethan Watters demonstrate that these recovered memories can be false, fabricated in the highly charged atmosphere of therapy, usually through questionable techniques such as hypnosis. Ofshe and Watters not only take to task poorly trained therapists - and in many states no real clinical experience is required to practice - they also show how the mental health establishment has actually added to the confusion. Ofshe and Watters trace the problem back to its source - Sigmund Freud - and illuminate how and why the debate about recovered memories will drive psychology in the future

Therapy's delusions : the myth of the unconscious and the exploitation of today's walking worried by Ethan Watters( Book )

4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this clearheaded and courageous book, Ethan Watters and Richard Ofshe expose the pseudoscience behind the twentieth century's most enduring myth - Freud's theory of the psychodynamic mind. Despite the lack of credible evidence for a powerful unconscious that controls our behavior, a huge number of therapists continue to base their practice on the idea that only they can uncover their patients' unconscious motivations, luring thousands of Americans, from the mildly demoralized to the seriously ill, down dangerous and arbitrary paths of treatment." "Therapy's Delusions also makes a decisive case for the biomedical approach to mental health care. In addition to the celebrated success of drugs like Prozac, revolutionary advances are being made in genetic research and in the field of cognitive and behavioral counseling. This book is a call to action for reforming the poorly regulated mental health profession, so that no more patients are misled by a myth that has held sway over American minds for far too long."--Jacket
