Regulating the Psychological Therapies - From Taxonomy to Taxidermy Denis Postle PCCS Books 2007

'Denis Postle chronicles 16 years of scrutiny and practical development of civic accountability for the psychological therapies. He shows how vested interests, which in the last decade successfully seduced an otherwise uninterested government into bringing forward state regulation, now find that they have got their wish but tragically for clients and practitioners alike, not in the form they sought.

Regulating the Psychological Therapies invites the reader to reassess their attitudes to state regulation, arguing that due to attempts to control the market for the psychological therapies, a deep confusion of ends and means has arisen. While intended to protect clients, legislation will be ineffective in this aim; conversely, through compromising innovation and favouring psychological monocultures, state regulation will damage and restrict clients' experience.'
