The task of training psychotherapists and group therapists is a complex one. We envision the therapist as a mature, flexible, though stable person, who has the capacity to encourage relationships with all kinds of different individuals and personalities, relationships that these individuals can use to express themselves freely and openly, to be able to scrutinize their unique patterns of experiencing themselves and others and to relate to others. The hope is: that the patient and therapist can review mutually the patterns the patient is using to be able to learn more adaptive ways to relate to himself and others and relearn more maladaptive ones.
