Hungry Ghosts: Psychotherapy, Control and the Winds of Homecoming

Abstract:

The heroic myth of domination and control of outer and inner nature is fraying at the edges. This article explores the mis-location of collective phenomena to individual experience and the place of psychotherapy at this cultural junction. Psychotherapy can continue its domesticated adjustment to the paradigm of control that leaves clients as hungry ghosts—scapegoats for cultural malaise. Or it can attempt its own painful emptying—a deconstruction or even an exorcism of its own hauntings that open the space for radical renewal. A brief excerpt from the clinical work around a significant dream highlights this exploration and offers a sail to catch the winds of homecoming.

Ethical Dilemmas

Abstract:

Toru, a therapist, notices that among his colleagues and acquaintances in the professions, talk about being ‘evidence-based’ is becoming more common. A university counselling service for which he works a few hours has introduced an outcome measurement system that seems to him rigid, symptom- focused and based on a more medical understanding of distress than he is comfortable with. In that service and elsewhere, a question keeps coming up in supervision groups, CPD sessions and informal discussions with other practitioners: ‘What is the evidence for the effectiveness of that?’.
