Is Therapy Ruining Lives?

The above ad was posted in a Lakewood, NJ publication. While the ad itself does not make any coherent argument against therapy aside from typical propaganda style slogans, it does represent the negative sentiments of a portion of the frum community. While many of the issues that people have with therapy are based in misconceptions, there are some valid points that need to be addressed properly. The purpose of this article is to address some of those points. While not explicit in the ad, the following is a few of the implied critiques based on the “testimonials”.

1.Therapists give harmful advice to their clients.

2. Therapists break up marriages and family relationships in the name of mental health.

3. Therapists are anti Torah Hashkafa.
