Example text

Part of the democratizing trend in psychoanalysis (Havens, 1989, p. ” The evolution of a therapy-sensitive culture in which people are knowledgeable about, and receptive to, psychotherapy, in which consumers assume the right to question and choose among all medical authorities and in which psychotherapy is packaged by managed health care has, ironically, also reduced analysts’ incomes. The more competition there is among providers of mental health care, the fewer the patients and the lower the fees for each privately practicing analyst (Chodoff, 1991, pp.
