Struggling with the Impotence Impasse: Absurdity and Acting-In
Keith, David V.; Whitaker, Carl A.
Journal of Marriage and Family Counseling, 4, 1, 69-77, Jan 78
This article describes two methods for breaking out of therapeutic impasses. One way is to be absurd, to push the situation to its ridiculous limit. The second is acting-in. Acting-in is the effort of the psychotherapist to intensify the anxiety to bring about an experiential breakthrough. (Author/JEL)
