One Nation Under Therapy
Sally Satel and Christina Hoff Sommers talked about their book One Nation Under Therapy: How the Helping Culture is Eroding Self-Reliance, published by St. Martin’s Press. They talked about the modern ethos of "therapism"-the attitude that human beings are weak, dependent, and never altogether responsible for what they do. They cited as examples the idea that Americans needed grief counselors, traumatologists, emotional intelligence coaches, and other experts to guide them through the trials of life and that children at risk of psychic harm from strict teachers and competitive games such as tag and dodge ball. The authors refuted these claims and offer what they consider a more realistic picture of the national psyche. They also answered questions from the audience. close
