Helpful Score: 2
Dr. Wood shows the layman how to differentiate between genuine psychological illness and those unpleasant but natural feelings which are an inescapable and often valuable part of living. If we are not sick, then we are well, even though we may be unhappy. Life is tough and frequently unpleasant. For those who have trouble coping, as of each of us occasionally does, Dr. Wood offers Moral Therapy. Moral Therapy holds that happiness is synonymous with self-respect; that we are happy when we follow the voice of conscience and unhappy when we do not.
