Uncertainty and the Attribution of Responsibility in the Psychotherapeutic Process.
Beier, Ernst G.
Peabody Journal of Education, v60 n3 p25-28 Spr 1983
In the analytic process, "beneficial uncertainty" is aroused to help the patient tolerate uncertainty in areas previously shut off in his/her search for identity. Through this process, the patient learns to accept responsibility for his/her actions and no longer blames others. (PP)
