Hypnotic Nature of Treatment Room

This article will consider the viability of the many psychotherapeutic methods on the market. In newspapers, journals, on the internet, there is a profusion of advertisements for people to train as psychotherapists I am using the term to cover counselling as well or undertake therapy  마곡노래방. Its achievements, rarely tested, are glowingly itemised. This article analyses the nature of psychotherapy employing directly or indirectly theories of perception.

Whatever shortcomings psychotherapy has, and there are many, in the present state of understanding of human nature, it must be preferred to the often barbaric and dictatorial certainly historically methods of psychiatry.

I will demonstrate that psychotherapists base their approach upon structured treatment environments that seek to impose and embed perceptual positions upon clients, ignoring and denying other equally valid positions. Psychotherapy functions not as a system of tested knowledge, but through the narrow, sometimes fanatical, pursuit of subjective, supposedly intuitive, insights based upon thoroughly examined but untested theories.

The client meets the therapist in a room, which may resemble an office or more closely a place of treatment with books of analysis of one kind or another. Usually there would be something to indicate the function of both room and therapist. The therapist normally determines sitting arrangements and whether or not there is eye contact. Similarly, the therapist determines how much vocalisation occurs in the room. Rarely, is a room large. In fact they tend to be relatively small with little to distract from the intended purposes.
