Abstract:

Erroneous ideas - many of them American - about how people should feel, behave and love, have become deeply ingrained in our culture from the Arts and entertainment, through the major institutions involved in everything from marriage guidance, to safer sex, to corporate policies, to government policies, to 'civil rights' psychology. Aric Sigman is neither gentle nor diplomatic in this uncompromising reappraisal of contemporary psychology. He argues that recent critics of psychotherapy have missed the point, for there is a more relevant and insidious issue reaching far beyond the therapist's chamber. Having evolved rapidly into a tool for achieving self-fulfillment through change - psychology has been misappropriated and promoted irresponsibly, particularly through publishing, the media and the trend towards self-improvement. This book is a powerful shake-up of our received wisdom. A liberating discourse taking an unusual route through some intensely sexual terrain, it will prove relevant to those disillusioned by self-improvement or those still seeking it. New, Improved? will be a source of deep concern for those in the media as well as the politically correct - and feminists should prepare themselves for a primal scream.
