Can Vygotsky's Cultural-Historical Concept Help us to Better Understand What We Do as Therapists?

1679

Abstract

Core methodological issues and trends in modern psychotherapy are addressed from the cultural-historical psychology perspective: the attempts to search for the new conceptual apparatus for describing processes and mechanisms underlying mental health; the issue of the content of therapist's activity: relieving the symptoms or facilitation of development. The heuristics of using the concept of «reflection» and «zone of proximal development» in psychotherapy is justified.
