"Crazy" Therapies

By Dr. Margaret Singer, Ph.D. and Janja Lalich, Ph.D.


This book is a startling expose of the alternative philosophies and practices that can be found in today�s ever-growing psychotherapeutic marketplace.

The book describes actual case histories of people who participated in a variety of controversial therapies. The authors outline methods and guidelines for distinguishing a legitimate therapeutic approach from one that is irrational, possibly harmful, and sometimes unethical.
