We've Had a Hundred Years of Psychotherapy – And the World's Getting Worse is a 1992 book by American psychologist James Hillman and American writer and commentator Michael Ventura.

The book has a three-part structure. The first section is in the form of a free-floating dialog between Hillman and Ventura. The second section consists of lengthier essays written by the two authors to each other. The third section returns to the dialog format of the first.

The two authors agree that psychotherapy as it is currently conceived is inadequate to deal with modern anxieties and neuroses.
