About this Item

viii, 196 pp. ; LC: BF698; Dewey: 132; NLM: WM 420 ; OCLC: 2789707 ; articles include: Problems in the definition and measurement of success in psychotherapy / Harold H. Mosak -- An objective measurement of frustration tolerance in evaluating psychotherapy / William N. Thetfold -- Personality changes in client-centered therapy / Natalie Reader Haimowitz -- Changes and adjustment following psychotherapy as reflected in Rorschach signs / Roy M. Hamlin -- A measure of client defensiveness / Richard A. Hogan -- An objective study of the locus-of-evalutaion factor in psychotherapy / Nathaniel J. Raskin -- Circular behavior / Harold H. Anderson -- Personality changes in client-centered therapy / NR Haimowitz -- An objective study of the locus-of-evaluation factor in psychotherapy / NJ Raskin ; "The present Personality Monograph unites quantitative investigations on therapeutic criteria and therapeutic successes. One criterion of successful psychotherapy is the patient's increased ability to recover from frustrations; another a decrease of self-deception and social maladjustment, producing the patient's defensiveness. Another criterion is the change in the patient's attitude toward himself, in his locus-of-evaluation of himself and of his dependence on the judgments of others. Again, another criterion is the patient's ability to break out of the vicious circle of domination that incites domination in others. For each of these criteria we need "tailored tests" which give evidence of specific changes of personality, and, therefore, of successes in psychotherapy. According to some investigators, the Rorschach test is a reliable instrument to indicate specific personality changes and therapeutic successes such as the patient's adjustment to emotional problems, his intellectual functioning, his personality integration. According to others, however, such Rorschach indicators seem to be controversial. The present contributions indicate that psychotherapeutic effects can be evaluated quantitatively; they invite further research in this direction in order to answer the crucial question of psychotherapy: Success--what is it--how is it come by?
