Having been around for quite a while, — like nine-tenths of a century! — I have been witness to extraordinary and fascinating changes in our society. As a teenager I wanted to be a minister, until I began to realize that what they were expecting me to believe was really not very believable.


So I switched to medicine, specializing in psychiatry, which offered Ec naprosyn price me an opportunity to be of some use to people who were seriously interested in understanding their own mental functioning and how it was affecting their lives.Ai?? My emphasis was on how early experiences were still influencing their self-perceptions, behavior, interpersonal experiences as well as occupational decisions and functioning.


My professional training occurred during the hay-day of psychoanalysis, when we all saw it as the answer to just about everything. It was the religion of psychiatrists of the time and held the promise of equipping them to solve everyone’s psychological problems. Unfortunately, the therapeutic results were disappointing and failed to deliver what its adherents hoped it would.

It has virtually changed life in these United States almost beyond recognition. I can recall when men couldnai??i??t appear on public beaches topless!

The language has changed—new and emotionally charged words and phrases —Ai?? obscenitiesAi?? have become commonplace almost beyond belief with totally uninhibited usage of heretofore prohibited inAi?? theater,Ai?? movies, radio, TV . We were all shocked to hear Clark Gable tell Vivien Leigh in ‘”Gone With the Wind” — ” I don’t give a damn!'”
