The Ossington Circle: Episode 4, Paul Moloney on the Therapy Industry
The Ossington Circle is an internet talk show hosted by Justin Podur in Toronto. This episode has Paul Moloney, the author of the book The Therapy Industry: the irresistible rise of the talking cure and why it doesn't work (Pluto Press 2013). In the book, Paul questions the idea that many of our problems can be resolved through talk, and advocates what he calls social-materialist psychology, a psychology that sees social relations and the external world as the most important determinants of mental health. Whether you're helping others as a teacher or in the community, or looking for answers in your own life, you'll find Paul's book, and this interview, solidly argued, surprising, and worthwhile.
