EP00 Dialogue 10 - Critique of Therapy - James Hillman, Ph.D., and Thomas Szasz, M.D.
Given a topic, to become aware of the differing approaches to psychotherapy, and to identify the strengths and weaknesses in each approach.
Moderated by Bernhard Trenkle, Dipl. Pysch.
Besides the patient's past history and present intrapsychic complaints, besides his/her interpersonal relations, the patient lives in an aesthetic, spiritual, cultural, economic and environmental world of intimate things, physical places and invisible atmospheres. To focus mainly upon personal subjectivity to the neglect of the non-human factors falsifies the patient's daily actuality and endangers therapy with artificiality. Therapy must therefore bridge into the world.

The client comes for help because he/she is "deeply" troubled. These "deeps" lurking inside problems need to be spoken about by the client and spoken to by the therapist/counselor. Otherwise practice fails its promise and becomes a bag of tricks for fixing problems.
