About IHGTC

by Arthur Kelly

Global Therapeutic Cultures is a movement focused on therapeutic cultures, popular psychology, and the happiness industry. We are a team of bloggers who abide and live by this newly created way of thinking and doing.

The authors of the newly published book include:

  • Daniel Nehring
  • Ole Jacob Madsen
  • Edgar Cabanas
  • China Mills
  • Dylan Kerrigan

These authors released The Routledge International Handbook of Global Therapeutic Cultures on August 25th 2020.

The movement is focused on bringing together studies of therapeutic cultures from sociology, anthropology, psychology, education, politics, law, history, social work, cultural studies, development studies, and American Indian studies.

It’s important that these factors are built into our own lives, to ensure that we can continue to build our own levels of self-identity. This book is more than just a book. It’s a way of living, and a way of looking to the past to see how we can improve our future selves and improve the whole ecosystem of the world we live in. Social Research is at the forefront of the movement, binding together to form our own future. It’s important that we recognise that today, we have developed a psychologised society and culture; as opposed to one formed mostly on physical strength in histories prior.

The IHGTC blog is run by 4 colleagues who have devoted upon a path of Global Therapeutic Cultures, and our intention is to focus solely on the things that are important to us – Health, Fitness, Travel, Mental Wellbeing and Diet. Anything that can help us to emotionally and physically excel, while paying home-age to our predecessors is vital.

The Routledge International Handbook of Global Therapeutic Cultures

“This imaginative and fascinating handbook is a major turning point in understanding how therapeutic ideas, assumptions and practices have spread through private and public life, politics and popular culture around the world. Fifty four years after Philip Rieff inaugurated interest in the American ‘triumph of the therapeutic’, this book’s diverse disciplinary perspectives shine new light on the myriad ways in which therapeutic culture responds to people’s problems whilst simultaneously creating new forms of oppression and commercial exploitation.”
