This review is from: Anxiety: Friend or Foe? (A Refreshingly Optimistic Approach from the Author of Conflict to Resolution) (Audio CD)
This tape is exactly the reason why psychotherapists are the subject of so much criticism. Dr. Heitler gives the listener little or no information or insight on what anxiety is, why people have it, or what you can do to alleviate it. Her random musings are little more than warmed-over pop psychoanalytic cliches of the Frasier Crane variety. "I'm listening!" She advises one of her patients that his panic attack in a supermarket aisle was caused by his fear of getting married (i.e., walking down the aisle). Does anyone really believe in this kind of Freudian mythology anymore? There is no discussion of the physiological basis of panic disorders, let alone any discussion of how this person would go about alleviating his panic attacks. If you want to get this tape be my guest: instead, I'd rather be taking a train through a tunnel while smoking a cigar.
