The New York Times has a article by Lori Gottlieb on "What Brand is Your Therapist?"
The article is about therapists who can't fill their practices, so they start sub-specializing, having glitzier websites, marketing through social media, and consult with specialists about how to gain their market share. The author is clearly a bit uncomfortable -- the new therapy world demands Facebook pages, blogs, self-disclosure, specializing, coaching, helping patients to feel good in just one session, and isn't about higher goals of understanding motivations and meaningful change. We're a feel good society, Gottlieb contends.
So what brand of shrink do you think is best?
