PRI Therapy
Wednesday April 18, 2007

Dear Dr. Miller: Would you, please, write a very detailed opinion regarding PRI (Past Reality Integration) Therapy as practiced by Ingeborg Bosch and Jean Jenson. Please include the similarities and differences between PRI and your personal/professional point of view. Do you believe there is any danger in PRI; if so, what? Thank you! M.

AM: About 12 years ago I supported the therapy concept of Jean Jenson, found her a publisher and even wrote a preface to her book. Then, after I had gained new insights about therapy methods, I was no longer happy with my endorsement and asked her and the publisher to remove my preface; but I never received any answer. I had to wait more than 10 years and write many times again until my preface was eventually removed. This neglect of my will as an author made me angry. I felt that my name was used only for promotional issues, and I was not at all interested to read the books by Ingeborg Bosch. I thus had no idea what she wrote.

It is only over the last few years that I have been confronted by her readers and her patient's, time and again, with quotations of her statements and with the demand for my opinion about them. Based on this knowledge, and only on this, I came to the following conclusions:

1- In my opinion the philosophy of Ingeborg Bosch is not at all based on my writing. If she believes that it is, she is wrong, and she shows that she doesn't seem to understand my position at all.

2- This wouldn't surprise me because the concepts of Ingeborg Bosch (spirituality as the goal and the end of a successful therapy, rage as false power) seem to me to be deeply rooted in the conventional morality (poisonous pedagogy etc.) that I am criticizing throughout my work.

You will find details to my arguments in my answers to the mails of 14th and 18th of April 2007 concerning the therapy of Ingeborg Bosch.
