Overview

The Future of Psychology explores the uncertain and unstable future of psychology as it is affected by science, technology, medicine, politics, government encroachment, and psychology's own practitioners-both good and bad. The book consists of interviews with leading thinkers in the field-from popular psychologists to respected academicians, from cognitive behaviorists to Jungian psychologists, from sex therapists to family therapists, from practitioners of prayer to doctors of medicine. These thinkers delve into the future of psychology and discuss the issues facing this young science, including: the aging of the population; the dangerous influence of insurance companies; the political corruption of psychotherapy; the creation of lasting psychological change; what new research tells us about psychological theories; how new medical breakthroughs are changing the face of psychology; and how spirituality and social responsibility fit into this "apolitical" field.

The Future of Psychology will be of use to several audiences. It provides answers to the general reader interested in psychological theory or in finding the "right" therapist. It functions as a practical, supplemental text for college-level psychology courses, offering a window into the real-world future of psychology practice and providing a myriad of theories and views that will propel classroom discussion. Finally the Future of Psychology will appeal to practitioners interested in keeping up with current ideas, and in evaluating the direction of their field and their own practices.
