Psychofraud and Ethical Therapy

By John David Garcia

About The Book

Book cover.The endless series of crises and breakdowns we are experiencing is clear evidence that the social instruments of our time are failing us. Putting our predicament into perspective, John David Garcia brilliantly reveals the subtle, destructive phenomenon of psychofraud and outlines an extraordinary antithesis, ethical therapy.

Psychofraud is defined as "an ideology about human behavior." It includes any method, device, or process which changes our behavior only because of our belief in it and not because of its intrinsic merit. Ethical therapy is the counter to psychofraud. It is based on helping each person see himself in a scientific, evolutionary perspective and to value objective truth above all things. It is based, not on belief, but on doubt.
