about

He wants therapy, which he can't afford, so has launched on this lengthy self analysis. In his work inside the institutions and with his friends outside, he deals with a constant stream of the weird, the insane or at least neurotic. He wanted to, but just couldn't bring himself to wait in the chow line in the Army. He rubbed all his supervisors the wrong way and was relegated to giving Rorschachs on the wards but snuck around doing therapy on the sly. Don realizes he seems to have abandonment issues, authority conflicts and puts up with horrendous abuse in fear of being alone. He seemed to prefer a negative reaction (to some of his defiant behaviors)to no reaction at all. Many years have passed since Dr. Don Miller arrived at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City in 1960. The author went on to obtain a Ph.D. in psychology in 1966, which was followed by decades of work as a clinical psychologist in the San Diego area. This manuscript was written in 1960, forgotten but discovered decades later by Dr. Miller’s wife Annette in a box in the garage. Annette scanned the yellowed typewritten pages and ran them through spell check for this present document. The events in this book cover the time period between spring 1957 and September 1960. Some readers have likened the book to “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.” Some readers could not stop laughing. If someone wants to know the right way to give a party, it is here, against a backdrop of Venice beatniks and student artists. Anyone who wants to try a self analysis to find out why or how they tick will find satisfaction in the book. Was Dr. Miller's self analysis successful? He did become a psychologist and guided thousands of others on their journeys over the years.
