After thirty years in the profession, Dr. Tana Dineen has written an unflinching critique of modern Psychology and Psychotherapy. This controversial best-selling exposé of the Psychology Industry was first published in 1996. Now available in its revised, updated and less expensive 3rd edition, it is no less popular nor less explosive than when it first appeared. Cited in Time and the New York Times, among other wide-circulation publications, Tana Dineen's scathing attack on the abuses and misuses of corrupted psychotherapy is a must read for care-givers and care-takers alike. And for would-be care-takers too. Topics covered include Victim-Making, Fabricated Victims, Selling Psychology as a Science, The Business of Psychology, The Technology of Victim-Making, The Rise to Power of the Psychology Industry, and Living in the Shadow of the Psychology Industry. Fully supported by end of book notes and index, and with a suggested reading list, this is one of the most important books on psychology to appear in recent years. The author has been often--and always unsuccessfully--attacked by representatives of corporate psychology who have resorted to character assassination rather than reason to try and prove Dr. Dineen wrong.

A former practicing psychologist and director of a psychiatric hospital in Canada, Tana Dineen holds both a Master's and Ph.D in Psychology.
After a long career in the field, Dr Dineen came to the conclusion that psychology, originally a science dedicated to the curing of serious pathology, has become diluted into what is now a broad range of pseudo-science and pseudo-therapy. Patients with little seriously wrong are offered therapy which is often of unproven value and kept on a payment string for as long as possible, focusing on what the therapist claims is wrong with them rather than what is right with them. From th adage of a cure for every ill, we have arrived at an ill for every cure and the ever-increasing use of psychology of little probatgive value in legal cases which often were no more based on scientific logic than the witch trials of centuries past became too much for Dr Dineen to stand. No longer believing psychology could reform itself from the inside, she left clinical practice and now runs a B&B in Victoria, British Columbia. She also writes several columns each month on various topics for Canadian newspapers.Review:
