The therapeutic empathic communication (TEC) process.

Abstract

While the communication of empathy is thought to be a curative factor in psychotherapy, current conceptualizations usually focus on empathy as only an attitude or state of mind of the therapist. A five-stage model of therapeutic empathic communication is presented. The model is applied to analyzing the therapeutic impact of empathic communication in dynamic psychotherapy. Its usefulness is demonstrated in a case example.
