Toward Further Explication of the Psychotherapeutic Process.
Carkhuff, Robert R.; Truax, Charles B.
The authors examine the dimensions of effective psychotherapy in an attempt to determine common variables of theoretic models which seem successful. Three such variables are discussed at length--concreteness, intensity and intimacy, and ambiguity. Assuming that one is not born with good therapist skills, one must learn them. Research and its implications for the progress of the therapeutic personality change process are discussed. (MJ)
