Red Therapy was a leaderless self-help therapy group in London started in 1974. This pamphlet expresses their ideas and experiences to an outside audience after five years of work. Some members of Red Therapy wanted to explore the intersection of revolutionary anti-authoritatian politics and therapy, others just wanted a leftist space to seek therapy with like minded individuals. Illustrated with collages, cartoons, and drawings, Red Therapy lays out the group’s activities and methods, while also acting as a manifesto of alternative therapy under isolating twentieth century capitalism.
