EP00 Invited Address 3a - Psychotherapy Isn't What You Think - James F.T. Bugental, Ph.D.
This address will review the long-held concept of the client seen as a passive source of information and receptacle for therapist feedback. Dr. Bugental will propose an amendment to this view which makes more use of the client's own conscious powers.
For the past half-century there has been a remarkable and continual evolution in the theory and practice of psychotherapy. Now that evolution shows signs of becoming a revolution. Many elements of these changes are, as yet, only scantily represented in the literature, but they are the stuff of bull sessions, the more liberated case conferences and solitary, sometimes fearful, experimentations. This transition comes about from a variety of influences, among which three are particularly worthy of examination for what they suggest about what is likely to emerge a half-century from now.
