What is Effective in the Therapeutic Process? A round Table Discussion Related Papers

Louis E. DeRosis, M.D.

In his presentation at the Round Table in 1956, Louis DeRosis addresses the importance of creating mutual trust in the therapeutic process in order to help the patient to develop a full range of feelings and nurture greater inner relatedness. These changes increasingly enable the patient to let go of their self-idealizations that have outlived their self-protective usefulness and gradually reduce their inner alienation. Dr. DeRosis describes the therapeutic connection not as a mere technique but as an expression of the life process, which allows the patient to connect more and more within himself and to broaden their hold on life in general.
