Actualizing Therapy: Foundations for a Scientific Ethic

In Actualizing Therapy, the authors develop a theory described as “creative electicism,” merging and building upon concepts and approaches to therapy espoused by various schools of psychological thought. The emerging system is defined as the process by which growth occurs, integrating thinking, feeling and bodily expression approaches to psychotherapy. Actualizing Therapy represents not only a process of growth but a philosophy of life embracing change on the basic polarities of Anger-Love and Strength-Weakness as a central emphasis. (by Everett L.
