Author Ben Harris Discusses his Chapter on Viewing Critical Social Justice from a Psychotherapeutic Perspective

Ben Harris is a psychotherapist in private practice in London. He practices from an integrative perspective, gleaning from psychoanalytic, Jungian and existentialist insights. In this episode, Christine and Jaco discuss Ben’s chapter in the Cynical Therapies book. Ben makes a thorough case from analytical psychology and existential philosophy, on how Critical Social Justice promotes, rather than alleviates, psychopathology. We discuss how severely regressive psychological defences manifest and are celebrated in Critical Social Justice.
