Empathy as a Method: from the Stainpoint of Modern Humanistic Psychotherapy 1056

Karyagina T.D., Associate Professor, Chair of Individual and Group Psychotherapy, Faculty of Counseling and Clinical Psychology, Moscow state University of psychology and education, Moscow, Russia, kartan18@gmail.com
Abstract
The article deals with an understanding of empathy in the context of the the prob- lems of subject matter and the method of psychotherapy. The focus is on the current state and development approaches in the branch traditionally called as humanistic or existential-humanistic psychotherapy. Status of empathy as a method of therapy is associated with the concept of the subject matter of work in a particular approach or school. Most often, the empathy is recognized as the method when the recogni- tion of experience as the subject matter of psychotherapeutic work takes place. Most obviously, this is done in modern experiantial approaches. We consider the specif- ics of experiantial methods in focusing-oriented therapy (E. Gendlin), emotiona — focused therapy (L. Greenberg, R. Elliott et al.), coexperiencing psychotherapy (F.E. Vasilyuk).

Keywords: psychotherapy, humanistic psychotherapy, experience, empathy, experiantial approach, person-centered approach, focusing-oriented psychotherapy, emotion-focused psychotherapy, coexperiencing psychotherapy
