    1. I became interested in the history of psychiatry and psychology in college, obtaining a degree on the subject in seminary and pursuing the study afterwards in graduate school Indeed, by the end of college I fully expected to become a depth psychologist.While, as with so many other interests, I ve kept my hand in since, reading the books I come across on these matters, I gave up the idea of a career in the field through the ancient Chinese method of a thousand cuts The church based program I had [...]

    6. After reading , this came up on some list for me somewhere Curious, I downloaded the sample It hooked me A very interesting read, I m adding it to my gothic literature shelf, because I feel like it belongs there Atmospheric, troubling, sexually perverseor perhaps just an illumination of the impact of being factually perverse, it made for a thought proviking read Mostly it discusses Freud s weird flip from ascribing the etiology of hysteria to actual sexual assaults to fantasized sexual assaults [...]

    7. This book confirmed my own personal suspicions about everything related to psychology, shattering the fundamental basis of therapy Assault on Truth ascribes personal history the fundamental role of forming our futures, our understandings, and our beliefs This observation is contrasted with the modern belief of people s problems stemming from invention in their own mind.If you are a psychotherapist, psychoanalyst, psychiatrist, or other similar field you will probably get very mad while reading t [...]
