Today psychotherapy is a big business. Practitioners have contributed to building an infrastructure of security and self reinforcement. Most of the current issues or problems that psychotherapy addresses have been conceived, created, categorized and maintained by psychotherapists. Could it be that these issues exist more in the mind of the profession rather than in the person who is seeking assistance for the problem? In this exciting new book, Dr. Alvin R. Mahrer, addresses issues related to what psychotherapy has been and suggest bringing the profession of psychotherapy to a close. He discusses and outlines how to replace psychotherapy with a innovative new profession based on a revolutionary new answer to the question - What is Psychotherapy For?
