J. Aronson, 1994 - Psychology - 159 pages
This work presents the use of dialectic psychotherapy. In this approach, two therapists treat the same individual, couple, family or group simultaneously and consistently take opposing roles. For example, one is provocative and confronts defences; the other is supportive and emphasises strengths.
