"The book is a treasure chest of anecdotes and incisive humor; the author’s memory is exceptional, many of the tales hilarious, and many of them horrifying.”Jay Neugeboren, Author of Imagining Robert and Transforming Madness

Presenting first-hand accounts from the ‘front line’, Reflections of a Cynical Clinical Psychologist provides the reader with a participant experience of the daily ups and downs of a US mental health professional. Vividly describing actual clinical events ranging from tragic to comedic, this book calls attention to the human realities of the system’s dysfunction.

Illustrated throughout by anecdotes based on the author’s 50 years of experience and observations in the field, the book focuses on ‘the system’ as the problem, identifying the limitations in current mental health policy with the emphasis misplaced onto profit rather than optimal patient care. These anecdotes are organized by themes such as the harsh treatment of patients by staff; loss in the workplace; anomalous staff behavior; problems with the legal system; and clinically unexpected and bizarre episodes.

The value of humor as a stress reducer, social leveler and a means to make incisive points is highlighted throughout. As stated by Jay Neugeboren, the author’s “advocacy on behalf of helpful policies, and against the idiocies that caused people pain and anguish is admirable, and beyond admirable. He has an amazing perspective, and a rich inventory of all that was good, less good, and awful in the way we've dealt with mental illness for the past half century in its more florid incarnations, and its less lethal instances. And the horrors noted in his early work at an old state hospital leavened by his wit made for an exceptional outlook on that era.”

This is important reading for mental health professionals, policy makers and those interested in humanizing social policy.

Linda Marsanico, PhD is a psychologist with an integrative and spiritual focus, was educated in the United States and England. Her doctorate in social psychology is from Loughborough University, England. At Postgraduate Center, NYC, she clinically focused on psychodynamic work with children, adolescents, and families.

Linda’s philosophy is referred to as facilitation and collaboration which rests on an equal relationship: the client as the ‘expert’ on self and the facilitator as the ‘expert’ on theories for psychological change.

With the notion of play taken from the work of D.W. Winnicott, the English pediatrician and psychoanalyst, Linda utilizes the beauty and function of playing: involving fantasy, creativity, and energy flow. The task is to align the conscious and unconscious with the specific goal of moving toward desired changes, nurturing the healing process.
