In The Problem PitFrederick Pohl

This short novel seems on the face of it to be describing a dystopian world, in which citizens are just cogs in a giant machine, forced to do the state's bidding. But the author subverts that slightly with the notion that as well as problem solving, therapy for the participants is also a key goal of the problem pit. Unfortunately, this isn't developed fully and I think this story would bear a much longer novel. And I can't believe this hasn't been filmed.
