  • For 30 years a director of psychological services in Nottingham, England, the clinical psychologist David Smail also mounted a reconstructive critique of psychotherapy, during the last quarter of the last century, that is unparalleled in its honesty, mindfulness and altruistic concern.

    In the course of four meetups, we will discuss each of Dr. Smail's essential books. You can obtain these at low cost from Amazon, or I am pleased to provide a free copy of my author-approved abridgment. Either way, I am confident you will find this introduction both fascinating and amply rewarding.

    In our first meeting, we will consider how our technological society objectifies and mythifies our sense of self and relationships; and how anxiety (despair, etc.), rather than being a symptom to be handed over to professionals, is evidence of our subjective insistence on getting real and being human.

    this should be a great topic – especially right after this election were "facts" were flipped upside down. Sorry I can't make it.

    It would seem that since our human problems are so common and universal that we should be seeking an understanding of them the goes beyond our individual cultures.
