“The articles by Elkins: D. N. Elkins, 2012, Toward a common focus in psychotherapy research, Psychotherapy, 49, pp. 450–454) and Hayes (S. C. Hayes, 2012, Humanistic psychology and contextual behavioral perspectives, Psychotherapy, 49, pp. 455–460) serve as a springboard for a call for a renewal of personological methods in studies of the psychotherapeutic relationship—methods that can investigate the emotional worlds of patient and psychotherapist as well as the relational systems constituted by the interplay between them.

“I believe only such idiographic research can illuminate the nexus of humanistic elements in which the psychotherapeutic process takes form. The beginnings of the author’s own phenomenological-contextualist psychoanalytic perspective hark back to a series of personological studies of the subjective origins of psychoanalytic theories.”
