One thing should be clear to critical thinking psychotherapists. Postmodernism has contaminated our field. We have been used by cultural Marxists to infect our clients with victim thinking. They asked us to deconstruct everything – even what is real. They told us there was no truth, only interpretation based on power. They privileged feeling over fact. They asked us to splatter their social justice mandates on everything we touched.
The result? Even though good psychotherapy works, and our numbers have grown, we have seen little progress in overall people outcomes for several decades. Things may even be worse.
It is time to say good-bye to the postmodernists.
