Summary
"Talking Cures and Placebo Effects defends the unpopular hypothesis that therapeutic changes in the psychodynamic psychotherapies are sometimes functions of powerful placebos that rally the mind's native healing powers in much the same way that placebo pills rally the body's native healing powers; and that psychodynamic insights and interpretations are themselves placebos. Few clients know this, and fewer still are informed of the potential placebo effects at play in exploratory psychotherapy, and of the consequent risks of self-misinterpretation and self-deception. Thus Talking Cures and Placebo Effects targets a host of problems that lie at the intersection of the epistemology, ethics, scientific status, and public accountability of the talking cures."--BOOK JACKET
