Discussion: New Directions

  • Morris B. Parloff


It is my happy chore to discuss today the five elegant papers we have just heard, each purporting to identify new directions in the psychotherapy of schizophrenia. I believe that the title, New Directions, was very wisely chosen, for it does not presume to assign directionality to the shifts and changes we have witnessed in the field. In psychotherapy, as in the broader field of treatment, it is rarely possible to state with certainty whether we are moving forward, backward, sideward, or merely windward.
