Psychotherapeutic Traction

Uncovering the Patient's Power-theme and Basic-wish

Henry Kellerman

Via the metaphorical ignition and forward movement of the therapeutic process, in Psychotherapeutic Traction, Dr. Henry Kellerman takes the reader on a journey through his decades of work with patients: reaching to their power-themes. These keep the individual’s personality organized, so that resulting behavior can fulfill basic-wishes. Five compelling Case Histories make this a book not only for professionals but for anyone interested in the difficult-and-rewarding work of the psychotherapeutic process.
