Based on more than forty-five years of research at the American Mental Health Foundation (AMHF), this intensive and expert examination of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis points out the important shortcomings in the profession and concludes that there has been a marked decline in the last decades caused by the ever-increasing use of superficial, facile treatment methods. Nonetheless, AMHF research has resulted in invaluable findings, which separate valid approaches from unsustainable theorizing and pseudo-scientific pretense. The solutions proposed will lead to the transformation of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis into truly viable crafts.

Dr. Stefan de Schill (1917-2005) was director of research of the American Mental Health Foundation beginning in 1948. He was a tireless campaigner for improved methods of mental-health training and treatment. His books include The Challenge for Group Psychotherapy and The Challenge for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy.
