Abstract:
On 25 June 1993, at an International Meeting of the Society for Psychotherapy Research (SPR) in Pittsburgh, Dr Hans Strupp, a distinguished and relentless crusader for scientific truth who has devoted the last four decades of his life to understanding the processes o f psychological change, approached the microphone. Sixty scientists waited to hear him pronounce, '"There are no cures". Dr Strupp is not a prototypical ivory-tower scientist; he has been trained by Frieda Fromm-Reichmann and profoundly influenced by Freud. The poetry and mysteries of psychoanalysis have not escaped his notice.
