ST Medical Monday: A Conversation with Enrico Gnaulati, Author of "Saving Talk Therapy"

book-shot.jpg
Aired on Monday, March 5th.

It's often noted that health care in America is changing quickly and dramatically -- and that it is, moreover, in a state of crisis -- but can the same be said for therapy? Our guest on ST Medical Monday is Dr. Enrico Gnaulati, a clinical psychologist based in California. He joins us to discuss his new book, "Saving Talk Therapy: How Health Insurers, Big Pharma, and Slanted Science Are Ruining Good Mental Health Care." As was noted of this book by Professor Ben Gorvine (with the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University): "[This] is an impassioned defense of the emotionally evocative form of psychotherapy that many people still seek. It is now vanishing. Dr. Gnaulati brilliantly lays out the history of the field and provides incisive analysis of the forces -- political, economic, and cultural -- that have endangered its future. This is a compelling and essential read for mental health professionals and consumers alike."

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
