Psychotherapy and Close-Process Technique

Cecilio Paniagua

The applicability and advantages of Paul Grafs concept of close-process in the practice of psychotherapy are discussed. Gray seems to have underestimated the potential and versatility of his technical approach to derivative psychotherapy procedures. Clinical vignettes are provided, describing some nodal points for intervention, and exploration of transferential, extratransferential and genetic aspects of the workable surface. Gray's methodology of intraclinical attention permits a more verifiable examination of sequences, an issue of special relevance in our age of empirical standards for the evaluation of dynamic therapies.
