Reinforcing Our Natural Self-centeredness and Self-absorption

Speaking of the transition to the new therapeutic world we inhabit, David Wells comments:
The downside to this self-worked therapy, of course, is that this constant taking of internal inventory only reinforces our natural self-centeredness and self-absorption. That, at least, is my view. But it is not the view of those who inhabit this therapeutic universe, which seems to be almost everybody else, even in the evangelical church.
