Abstract:

"In this highly provocative book, Stephen Ray Flora maintains that we have been deceived into believing that whatever one's psychological problem from anxiety, anorexia, bulimia, depression, phobias, sleeping and sexual difficulties to schizophrenia - there is a drug to cure us. In contrast, he argues that these problems are behavioral, not chemical, and he advocates behavioral therapy as an antidote. He makes the controversial claim that for virtually every psychological difficulty, behavioral therapy is more effective than drug treatment. Not only that, but the side effects of behavioral therapy, rather than being harmful like many drugs, are actually beneficial, often facilitating self-empowerment through learning functional life skills."--Jacket.
