ABSTRACT

Though sociology has explored many facets of mental illness, discussions of psychotherapy have been largely underdeveloped. By examining published and “grey” literature in the sociology of mental health, I identify three significant eras of research. The first period of sociology of mental health (1880s–1960s) focused on etiologies of mental illness. The second era (1960s–1990s) critiqued many issues related to the diagnosis of illness. The current era explores the treatment of mental illnesses. Despite almost thirty years of research, the sociological discussions of psychotherapy have been dismal at best. I explore the primary reasons for this neglect, identifying major trends across several eras, and outline research limitations in this literature. I conclude by proposing a research agenda for a sociology of therapy that focuses on theoretical integration, methodological application, and a focus on therapeutic work. Four primary benefits to sociology are proposed, focusing on accuracy, triangulation, richer theorizing, and better applied sociology. More... »
