Beyond Therapy, Beyond Science: A New Model for Healing the Whole Person

Overview

With candor, compassion, and insight, Anne Wilson Schaef convincingly explores the unspoken limitations of the scientific paradigm upon which this society is built and the frightening implications of a psychotherapy that is derived from that paradigm.

Overview

With candor, compassion, and insight, Anne Wilson Schaef convincingly explores the unspoken limitations of the scientific paradigm upon which this society is built and the frightening implications of a psychotherapy that is derived from that paradigm. She persuasively demonstrates that the field of psychotherapy as we know it not only cannot work, it works against us, supporting personal and societal addictions. The author of several groundbreaking books, Schaef is known as a visionary with the practical applications to back up the truth. In her long-awaited Beyond Therapy, Beyond Science, she presents a new approach for healing the whole person that emerges from and supports a new scientific paradigm, one that allows us to not only heal ourselves but heal the planet as well. Applicable at many levels - the personal, professional, scientific, political, and philosophical - Beyond Therapy, Beyond Science offers not only a method but also a process for evolving solutions in a world constrained by the scientific worldview. With Beyond Therapy, Beyond Science Schaef again shows herself to be one of the most creative thinkers of our time, taking a field she has loved - psychotherapy - and using it as a springboard for rethinking ourselves and our world. A crucial work by a trenchant thinker, Beyond Therapy, Beyond Science will inspire thought, ignite controversy, and, most importantly, facilitate healing.
