In the first book of its kind, Leavitt highlights a crucial missing piece from national political discourse – the declining state of America’s mental health – and emphasizes that addressing our nation’s ills from a psychological perspective takes us beyond partisanship altogether.
Through a blend of personal anecdotes, client case studies, and historical insights, she correlates the destructive dynamics in families with the harmful behaviors of influential institutions and leaders. Using principles like Family Systems Theory and her own innovative concepts, Leavitt paints a vivid picture of the consequences of untreated societal trauma.
America in Therapy not only informs but also inspires actions towards reconciliation, unity, and healing. Aimed at a diverse audience, from social reformers to young adults navigating an uncertain future, Leavitt’s work underscores the urgency of waging peace for the survival of our nation and humanity. It is a clarion call to collectively embark on the challenging journey of national healing before it’s too late.
