EST Therapy (1970s)
Have you ever felt insecure or been unhappy with your life? In the 1970s, they had a unique therapy to help you. People would come together to verbally abuse you and degrade you until you felt completely worthless. Then, THEN, they would rebuild and you would be reborn as a useful member of society.
If you think this sounds like utter poppycock, hang on. This “therapy” was developed by (wait for it) an encyclopedia salesman. See, yes, it IS utter poppycock. His first “training sessions” were held in small apartments. However, it did catch on (?) and soon his sessions were taking place in giant hotel conference rooms.
