Enrico Gnaulati Offers "Saving Talk Therapy" (Encore Presentation)
(Note: This interview originally aired in March.) 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 is Dr. Enrico Gnaulati, a clinical psychologist based in California. He joins us to discuss his 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 Gorvin of 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."
