Symposium : The Cost of Psychotherapy : The Impact of Money. Washington, DC USA, 1992.
The managed mental health care industry is seen as having established a totalitarian regime, subjugating patients and therapists and depriving them of freedom and the democratic process.
This paper compares the regimes of Mussolini, Hitler, Lenin, and Stalin, and the fictional regimes in Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's Brave New World with managed care.
The comparison is made by discussion of eight characteristics of totalitarianism that seem to be replicated by the managed care industry.
Three key issues for health care reform are mentioned.
The author urges therapists to become active in efforts to retain freedom and democracy for patients and the profession. epsilonArticle copies available from The Haworth Document Delivery Service : 1-800-342-9678. zêta.
