This book is a breath of fresh air. It takes a clear stance against the current prevailing "positivistic, managerialist, audit culture ", with its mantra of we must provide evidence for our practice, our practice must be evidence based, we must carry out RCTs, we must...etc. Loewenthal calls for "a thoughtful return to practice" and argues that if we do need theory it should be based on practice rather than the other way round. I enjoyed this book immensely and recommend it to anyone interested in reflecting on what psychological practice is actually about.

This book makes clear that reducing emotional troubles to brain or psychology cuts out what is most essential in what it means to be human. A welcome antidote to the growing positivism within the psychological professions.

As is so often the case with Karnac they have not included a table of contents. On the basis of this, and with some frustration, I am returning this Kindle content.
