After thirty years in the profession, Dr. Tana Dineen has written an unflinching critique of modern Psychology and Psychotherapy. This controversial best-selling expos© of the Psychology Industry was first published in 1996. Now available in its revised, updated and less expensive 3rd edition, it is no less popular nor less explosive than when it first appeared. Cited in Time and the New York Times, among other wide-circulation publications, Tana Dineen's scathing attack on the abuses and misuses of corrupted psychotherapy is a must read for care-givers and care-takers alike. And for would-be care-takers too. Topics covered include Victim-Making, Fabricated Victims, Selling Psychology as a Science, The Business of Psychology, The Technology of Victim-Making, The Rise to Power of the Psychology Industry, and Living in the Shadow of the Psychology Industry. Fully supported by end of book notes and index, and with a suggested reading list, this is one of the most important books on psychology to appear in recent years. The author has been often--and always unsuccessfully--attacked by representatives of corporate psychology who have resorted to character assassination rather than reason to try and prove Dr. Dineen wrong. Review. ...argues that psychology has changed from a respectable academic discipline into an industry eager to sell its products... -- The Mail on Sunday (London). “Renegade psychologist dukes it out with feelings folks.” -- Mark Sauer, San Diego Union-Tribune “Tana Dineen...the woman who put psychology on the couch.” -- Lynn McAuley, The Ottawa Citizen About the Author. Dr. Dineen practiced psychology for many years before concluding that her profession had swayed from a discipline whose aims were to relieve the suffering of the minority of humans with serious mental disease and become a gigantic industry targeting, for a price, the lesser ills of the majority with no mental disease but with money to spend on remedies, the majority of which were of unproven and often little value.
