Please enjoy our latest CEERES of Voices interview with Tomas Matza, author of the new book Shock Therapy.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia witnessed a dramatic increase in psychotherapeutic options, which promoted social connection while advancing new forms of
capitalist subjectivity amid often wrenching social and economic transformations. In Shock Therapy Tomas Matza provides an ethnography of post-Soviet Saint Petersburg,
following psychotherapists, psychologists, and their clients as they navigate the challenges of post-Soviet life.
