This contribution specializes in what I name "intellectualizing techniques." I suggest the following using "intellectualization" by means of the therapist as a awake device. He falls in with the patient's frame of mind, yet isn't the dupe of the patient's intellectualizing defenses. He makes use of the means of the sufferer to "think" and his desire to "understand" constructively in the healing scenario as a method of (a) increase the transference on a wide ego-syntonic point, (b) utilizing this transference because the stabilizing historical past for the ups-and-downs of treatment, and (c) as defense for particularly daring energetic interpretations, guarded via their "intellectualized" layout.
Intellectualizing thoughts in Psychotherapy by means of Ruth L. Munroe (Kindle variation) types a part of an initiative through the web site www.all-about-psychology.com to make very important, insightful and fascinating psychology guides commonly available.
