Description:

Americans have traditionally placed great value on self-reliance and fortitude. In recent decades, however, we have seen the rise of a therapeutic ethic that views Americans as emotionally underdeveloped, psychically frail, and requiring the ministrations of mental health professionals. Today---with a book for every ailment, a lawsuit for every grievance and a TV show for every conceivable problem---we are at risk of degrading our native ability to cope with life' s challenges. Drawing on established science and common sense, Christina Sommers and Dr. Sally Satel reveal how " therapism" and the burgeoning trauma industry have come to pervade our lives, with a host of troubling consequences, including: *The myth of stressed-out, homework-burdened, hyper-competitive, and depressed schoolchildren in need of therapy and medication *The loss of moral bearings in our approach to lying, crime, and addiction *The unasked-for " grief counselors" who descend on bereaved families, schools, and communities following a tragedy Intelligent, provocative, and wryly amusing, "One Nation Under Therapy" demonstrates that " talking about" problems is no substitute for confronting them.
