Reading Group

Lent term: How does Psychotherapy Work?
We will start with a discussion of how psychotherapy is currently tested, and then turn to the question of what makes it efficacious and how we should understand psychotherapy as a discipline — as a science, as offering frameworks for understanding the world, as a culture of healing?
