THE THERAPY CRISIS – Each year, millions of people enter therapy hoping and believing they’ll be helped—but studies show that many aren’t being helped. In fact, some patients find they are struggling with more emotional problems than before. Too many people end up stuck in therapy year after year, for no good reason at all.
THE REVOLUTION – Richard Zwolinski, a licensed mental health counselor and expert on anxiety and addiction, is a watchdog for professional ethics and patient rights. For more than twenty years he has been helping patients receive the best, most effective care for the least cost in a reasonable amount of time. In Therapy Revolution, Zwolinski puts the therapists on the couch and analyzes their performances. He exposes harmful therapy practices
and shows you exactly what you need to do to find a therapist who is ethical and competent. In this solution-oriented call to action, Zwolinski reveals:

and why you should leave a therapist who refuses to use them
• How you can find, interview, and hire the therapist that’s right for you
• The red flags that indicate therapy isn’t working—and what you need to do
if a therapist breaks the rules
