Reviews

One of New Statesman's Books of the Year



"Hannah Zeavin's remarkable The Distance Cure: A History of Teletherapy (MIT Press) disinters the history of long-distance psychoanalysis. From Freud's "self-analysis" in correspondence with physician Wilhelm Fliess, to the mass communication of psychoanalysis through radio, to suicide hotlines and the use of video-calling to treat patients during the pandemic. Psychoanalysis has rarely reflected on this history because from its foundations, when Freud was fascinated with telepathy, it was gripped by a fantasy of medium-less communication. But, Zeavin shows, the analytic relationship always needs mediation: ritual, appointments, money, all create the "distanced intimacy" across which the undercurrents of fantasy and transference flow. And what is true of the analytic relationship is also true, differently, of all relationships."-New Statesman

"An enticingly written and thoroughly researched monograph by Hannah Zeavin-a lecturer in the Departments of English and History at the University of California, Berkeley-is the first ever academic foray into the history of modern teletherapy."-E&T Magazine
"In the last year and a half, plenty of people have experienced the world of virtual therapy. But teletherapy has a long history that predates Zoom being ubiquitous, and Hannah Zeavin's new book The Distance Cure offers a comprehensive look at that history. Technology and mental health have a long shared history, and this helps put that into perspective."-Inside Hook

"Well-researched and enormously confident with the materials at hand"-The Point

"Hannah Zeavin's remarkable The Distance Cure: A History of Teletherapy disinters the history of long-distance psychoanalysis."-Richard Seymour
