Is a science of psychotherapy possible? Subjectivity problems

, : Is a science of psychotherapy possible? Subjectivity problems. American Psychologist 55(10): 1133-1138

Two sorts of subjectivity problems are discussed. The 1st concerns the characterization of psychotherapy as an attempt to alter clients' meanings. The 2nd concerns the seemingly subjective nature of value judgments about psychotherapy outcomes. It is argued that despite initial appearances, neither of these problems poses an insuperable difficulty for transforming the discipline of psychotherapy into a genuine science.
