In a society that punishes us for the expression of our emotion and rewards us for role-playing and lack of conviction, millions of Americans have found it dangerous to acknowledge their true feelings. The result has been a vast emotional turn-off that leaves many people totally unaware that deep feelings of anger, fear, and pain exist in them at all. A Scream Away From Happiness is about a kind of "scream therapy" that goes rapidly beyond the symptoms of disorder to the feelings, attitudes, and behavior of today's emotionally frozen man. In scream therapy, people can touch and embrace and confront one another honestly - something they cannot do in most instances in our culture. A Scream Away From Happiness presents the groups, the marathons, and the people that make them. It discusses what is wrong with Americans today and why traditional analysis often fails. It is, finally, a plea for greater honesty to the self and to others.
