Pub Psychology debate: Does Self-help work?

Self-help is a big industry. I bet you've read at least one self-help book or/and attended one self-help talk or course. It has become part of our culture. Yet, In 2005 Steve Salerno portrayed the American self-help movement not only as ineffective in achieving its goals, but also as socially harmful. What do you think? What is your experience with self-help? Has anything from that field changed your life for the better or you have lost faith in it? Come along and share your thought and feelings in this respect or, if you prefer, just learn from the experiences of others.
