Therapeutic Schools, Styles, and Schoolism: A National Survey
This article summarizes a national survey of behavioral, gestalt, psychoanalytically oriented, and transactional analysis psychotherapists. Therapists were asked to express their views on a wide range of therapeutic issues and to describe selected in-therapy behaviors. Additionally, self-reported interschool contact and attitudes were compared. Striking school differences were obtained in all of these areas. The findings are discussed in relation to developments in contemporary psychotherapy.
