Abstract

Effects of current social and political forces on mental health are considered, with particular attention to the way in which the unrelenting acceleration of change undermines the individual's sense of temporal continuity. The contributions and limitations of the mental health professions are examined, and it is suggested that the major challenge of psychotherapy in our time may be to aid individuals in coping with a world in flux.
