Jeffrey B. Rubin is a psychoanalyst in private practice in New York City and Bedford Hills and is also Faculty and Training Supervisor at Harlem Family Institute. He is the author of the groundbreaking and critically acclaimed Psychotherapy and Buddhism: Toward an Integration and A Psychoanalysis for Our Time: Exploring the Blindness of the Seeing I.
"This is a remarkably jargon-free, accessible, thoughtful analysis of the current state of psychotherapy and its inability or unwillingness to help people address social and individual issues by affirming their values, spirituality, and creativity. This sounds like Dr. Phil, but it isn't. In discussions ranging from Greek tragedies to Mozart and Michelangelo, Rubin takes us on a serious journey through the history, failures, and potentials of psychoanalysis."
