Dare to disagree

Dare to disagree | Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy | Scoop.it
Most people instinctively avoid conflict, but as Margaret Heffernan shows us, good disagreement is central to progress. She illustrates (sometimes counterintuitively) how the best partners aren’t echo chambers -- and how great research teams, relationships and businesses allow people to deeply disagree.

Person-Centered Process: The Soul of Therapeutic Change, by Blake Griffin Edwards

Person-Centered Process: The Soul of Therapeutic Change, by Blake Griffin Edwards | Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy | Scoop.it

"...The task of therapy is, in part, one of empathy and its byproduct, encouragement. As courage expands, openness to change merges into willingness. Willingness is an expression of courage. Transformative change occurs in the lives of those who are open to it, turn their will toward it, and surrender self-protective artificialities and fears to a grander scheme. Faith, hope, or even relationship may catalyze therapeutic transformation. This sort of change demands great preparation, care, and patience. It is surprising to many that when transformative changes do occur, they often come in subtle ways and bring with them simple joys, almost unexpectedly. The novelist John Steinbeck (1954) wrote, “Change comes like a little wind that ruffles the curtains at dawn, and it comes like the stealthy perfume of wildflowers hidden in the grass.” Viktor Frankl (1988) insisted, “One has long ago come to realize that what matters in therapy is not techniques but rather the human relations between doctor and patient, or the personal and existential encounter” (p. 6). Carl Rogers (1961) conjectured that optimal therapy requires a therapist entering into an intensely personal and subjective relationship with a client, “relating not as a scientist to an object of study, not as a physician expecting to diagnose and cure, but as a person to a person” (pp. 184-185). Yet we are easily wooed by gimmicks and novelty, aren’t we? In his 1784 essay, “An Answer to the Question: What is Enlightenment?,” the philosopher Immanuel Kant asserted, “Dogmas and formulas, these mechanical tools designed for reasonable use—or rather abuse—of his natural gifts, are the fetters of an everlasting nonage [or, immaturity].” If a psychotherapist is lifeless or his technique too technical, his efforts to help may be worthless. Therapy, in this case, is not relationship but a poor excuse for scientific experimentation. The mechanisms of some psychotherapies undermine their therapeutic value. If a therapist is not fully present as a warm, accepting, genuine, caring person, then the power center of therapy remains turned off and, for all practical purposes, ineffective. Ultimately, the person-centered process in psychotherapy is the soul of therapeutic change." [click on the title for the full article]
