IV. Schools of therapy
There are a number of "schools" of therapy that at one time or another held a prominent place in the field. Today they may be seldom practiced in their "pure" form. Every well-trained therapist studies them all, but applies only those portions that might be relevant to the needs of a particular client. The following are some historic schools of therapy, many still used today in their evolved forms:
  • Freud's "Psychoanalysis"
  • Jung's "Analytic Psychology"
  • Adler's "Individual Psychology"
  • Pavlov's "Conditioned Response"
  • Sullivan's "Interpersonal Theory"
  • Perls' "Gestalt Therapy"
  • Horney's "Self Realization"
  • Fromm's "Neo-Freudianism"
  • Rogers' "Humanistic Therapy"
  • Frankl's "Existential Therapy"
