The Tension in the Circuit is High: Some Aspects of Psychotherapy as a Cultural Practice
The aim of the article is to discuss psychotherapy with the specialists. The author considers the contradiction that determines the status of contemporary psychotherapy as a specific socio-cultural practice. She refers to the factors linked to the dynamics of cultural contexts. In particular, the author suggests her own view of the contradiction between the lack of legitimisation and the tendency towards the formalisation of psychotherapeutic practices.
