Values and Evaluation from the Point of View of Psychopathology and Psychotherapy
Lhotová Marie
Examining what are values and reflecting on how important the discussion concerning them is in psychotherapy is fairly acute from the point of view of psychotherapeutic work, especially since values find expression in the attitudes and ideologies of both patients and therapists. However, the views of psychotherapeutic work with values, value system and individual value hierarchies diverge. The paper aims to analyse the possibilities of psychotherapeutic intervention within the framework of examining the individual premises of value judgement. It mentions in detail the existential-analytic approach to value, whose explanatory framework allows for construing the issue of values basic for therapeutic work.
