   schema:reviewBody ""Psychotherapy, American Culture, and Social Policy provides a lively indictment of psychotherapy and individualism by examining American cultural structures - child-rearing, family life, mental illness, and education. Throop advances a complex argument that American reliance on psychotherapy to explain these structures is a poor justification which neglects those most in need and pain. Both interdisciplinary and solidly anthropological, this study is sure to provoke discussion from both the right and the left and cause serious consideration of Throop's call for cultural change and just social policies."--Jacket." ;
