Exchange, Balance, and Formal Organization in Psychotherapeutic Interactions
Connor, Huell E., Jr; Maris, Ronald W.
Suicide and Life-Threatening Behavior, 6, 3, 150-168, F 76
Psychotherapeutic interactions in crisis situations are analyzed in terms of the "sociodynamic" concepts of exchange, balance, and formal organization. It is argued that psychodynamic interpretations of crisis intervention therapy tend to be incomplete and nonsystematic and, thus, fail to produce adequate predictions, explanations, and control of psychotherapeutic outcomes.
