To learn interview techniques for reducing client resistances to being genuinely engaged with the therapeutic work and to be able to facilitate client inner exploration
To understand the division of responsibility in which the client leads content and the therapist modulates process
Bugental (1990) provides two demonstrations. First, Bugental works with Molly, an associate who is familiar with this approach at an advanced level. Next he works with a naïve client, demonstrating what therapy might look like on the first visit. After each session, Bugental and his client reflect upon his methods.
