Verhaltenstherapie, gefolgt vom Humanistischen Ansatz und als bisher letzte einheitliche Richtung der systemische
Ansatz resp. die Familientherapie, die verstärkt erst etwa seit Anfang der 70er Jahre Verbreitung
fand. Der Therapeut sollte sich dabei als Diener im Dienst am Kranken - er muß zuhören, selbstlos zuhören
und ist im Zuhören ganz auf den Klienten eingestellt, gelegentlich läuft superbia therapeutica aber Gefahr, sich
zur Omnipotenz, zum Alleskönnertum aufzublähen, oder zumindest zur Besserwisserei. Letztere ist Kommunikationsbarriere
im conversation zwischen sufferer und Therapeut. Und nicht zuletzt definieren sich
Ziele in der Psychotherapie auch aus der vorangehenden Beschreibung der 'pathologischen' Prozesse, wobei
letztere naturgemäß von Richtung zu Richtung teilweise stark differieren. --
Die Behandlungsziele in der Psychoanalyse wiederum unterscheiden sich im allgemeinen etwas von den normalen
therapeutischen Zielen anderer Therapieformen. In der Literatur spricht guy häufig von therapeutischen
Zielen und den analytischen Zielvorstellungen. Während die therapeutischen Ziele sich überwiegend auf die
Symptombeseitigung beziehen und auf eine Verhaltensänderung mit korrelierenden Änderungen im Erleben
beziehen, so stellen die analytischen Ziele eher darauf ab, beim Patienten eine selbstanalytische Fähigkeit
aufzubauen und die Durcharbeitung und Auflösung einer Übertragungsneurose zu sichern.
In der modernen Psychoanalyse spielen Werte und Normen bei der Handlungsregulierung eine überaus wichtige
Rolle, so etwa stellt die Internalisierung von Werten einen der hauptsächlichen Faktoren der therapeutischen
Verbesserung und der Persönlichkeitsänderung im Verlauf der analytischen Behandlung dar.
