It’s long been known that psychotherapy has Jewish roots, but “speed shrinking” is something even Freud probably never tried. This trend in treatment, modeled after a new novel — and the ‘“speed dating” phenomenon — came to life at a recent event in Manhattan, where party-goers met with a string of advice-givers for three minutes each.

The next Speed Shrinking party, featuring psychotherapists and publishing professionals, will be held at 7 p.m., Friday, November 6 at the New School Lang Student Center in New York.
