Abstract

The author schematically describes the three predominating themes in the development of the psychotherapies: dynamic, behavioral, and experiental. These themes represent different conceptualizations of the fundamental nature of man and his ills, therapeutic processes or change agents, the basic nature of the physician-patient relationship, and the primary techniques and methods used. Although there appears to be some unifying thread connecting the four different areas within each theme, a comparable bond The author questions the potential unification of the psychotherapies and poses specific dimensions for further exploration.
