I think this is true, up to a point. A person can't enjoy healthy social bonds and a legible inner life if they are stuck in false perceptions of self, or intense negative self-beliefs; talk therapy, when done well, not only raises, but changes and challenges, consciousness. Whether or not a guided psychedelic experience is a better means to that end is an open question.

But Becker's got a persuasive takedown of bad, Indulgent psychiatry that seeks a context of blame for every malady of the mind or spirit. I'm eager to check out Part II 🤠
