  1. Prevention, not treatment, is the only hope : The future of psychotherapy in the millennium : wither or whither ?

    Article - En anglais

    If our goal is the reduction or elimination of emotional disorders in our country, or in the world, a major social revolution is required.

    Individual psychotherapy is available to a small number only.

    No mass disorder has ever been eliminated by treating one person at a time.

    Psychotherapy is useful in teaching the possibility of unlearning damaging habits and thus it contradicts the organic-brain disease model advanced by political conservatives.

    Organic explanations of mental disorder find causes inside the person and ignore or deny the pathological environments of poverty, racism, sexism and exploitation.

    The organic model is supported by corporate power and conservative citizens'groups.

    It is time for radicals to come together to expose the power elite for its control of invalid ruling ideas.
