Prof. Scott Lilienfeld about “Psychology Led Astray”


One of the best known skeptical psychologists in the World, prof. Scott Lilienfeld wrote about Psychology Led Astray: Cargo Cult in Science and Therapy:

An entertaining but extremely important romp through the often wild and wacky world of unsupported and dangerous psychotherapies.  This greatly needed book makes the point that although much of contemporary psychology is grounded in solid science, pseudoscientific elements lurking within this field remain alive and well.  In this respect, this book is a powerful wake-up call to mental health consumers, professionals, and researchers alike.

Scott O. Lilienfeld,  Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor of Psychology, Emory University (Atlanta); Editor, Clinical Psychological Science
