    I worked for 35 years in institutions run by the State of Minnesota and am suprised that Dr. Houck was allowed to do his Jungian Therapy for more than 7 months let alone 7 years. These institutions are not run by enlightened men and women. Arron Beck called CBT “evidence based therapy, ” unfortunatly it is not evidence based in reality. Dr. Dave’s interviews with people like Bruce Ecker explain why. I was moved by these interviews with Dr. Houck.
