Assessing Experience in Psychotherapy: Personal Construct Alternatives

Synopsis

This book focuses on the importance of understanding the experience of the person as the primary task of psychology and psychotherapy. It uses phenomenologically based, qualitative research methodologies to understand the experiences of four persons being seen in psychotherapy. It compares hypotheses generated from phenomenologically based assessment instruments to detailed analyses of psychotherapy sessions. Thus, therapists, students, and clients can see the relationship between the holistic understanding of the experience of persons and avenues for therapeutic movement.
