In the last thirty years psychology andpsychotherapy have become constant presencesin our lives. Psychologists are oftenprotagonists of public debates, they interveneon newspapers and TV, they have theirsay in the legal cases, they are consulted bythose who decide social policies…Psychologyis influential, it has been legitimated,and for those who are in therapy it’s easierto understand the necessity of therapy andask for its support. Despite this, psychotherapyappears to be like a hazy combinationof issues: its efficacy begins to be as a given,but there is still a great confusion inits essence. What is it, compared to medicine? Why do so many schools exist? Whichis the right cost for it? Why do we have topay also cancelled sessions? Why parentswho send their sons to therapy can’t have information from the therapist every time they want it? Why so many therapists don’taccept to treat relatives of their patients? Which are the risks in relying on who promises to cure our psyche? In and out the room is a book that triesto articulate some clear answers addressedto those who go to therapy and, atthe same time, to reconstruct the contemporarydebate and the history of recentpsychology. A jargon-free text about a world that we presume to know but it’s less transparent then it seems to be, useful to do the most difficult and easiest thing ever: to become yourself.
