Synopsis:
In Treatment is set within the psychotherapy sessions of five patients. The first ever HBO half-hour drama features Paul (Gabriel Byrne), a therapist who exhibits great insight and confidence when treating his patients, but crippling insecurities while counseled by his own therapist, Gina (Dianne Wiest). Adding to his list of growing concerns, his wife, Kate (Michelle Forbes), is overcome with feelings of neglect and resents competing for his attention.
Patients undergoing treatment with Paul include a young doctor (Melissa George) who has fallen in love with Paul, a Navy pilot (Blair Underwood) reevaluating his life after a failed mission in Iraq, a teenage gymnast (Mia Wasikowska) with suicidal tendencies and a passionate couple (Josh Charles and Embeth Davidtz) who are troubled in all other areas of their lives.

Terrible self-pitying therapy sessions - In Treatment: Series 1 review by PV

Spoiler Alert
10/02/2011

How much you like this TV series will depand on how much you are into therapy and the kind of self-obsessed navel-gazing and egocentricity of the me me me generation. Americans apparently loved this tV series - but then, they are all on medication and worship therapists. If you are like me and think counsellors are mainly rip-off merchants who love nosingin people's lives and don't actually do any good at all, tyhen you'll hate it.

Also, despite good acting from Gabriel Byrne, the acting of the 'patients' was over the top. It looked like I was watching an acting lesson at some US stage school.

So, not my thing; but if you are into wallowingin your own self-pity and are interested in therapy, then you'll love it!

i will need treatment after watching this!! - In Treatment: Series 1 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

As a psychotherapist I watched most of this through my fingers as, in my opinion, it in no way truly represented the relationship between therapist and client - I found it to be cliched, cringe-making and with no dramatic tension whatsoever.

Arresting, grappling with deep life themes - In Treatment: Series 1 review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
29/05/2014

Sure, this is television. Therapy is not this intensely dramatic and rapid, but it's not far off the possibilities that can arise. Tense and riveting it is; an emotional roller coaster through some tough existential terrain, the stuff of life, disaster and resolution. Not for the emotionally faint of heart or the cynical, but worth sticking with as it progressively gets better as the sessions develop. There is a lot to be gained from engaging with the emotions and conflicts that arise and are processed to various degrees.

As a psychological therapist, I was moved as well as entertained. Probably one of the best rendition of therapy portrayed through the TV medium.
