Both in Multidimensional Therapy and Ascension Healing, in the anamnesis phase, the therapist can use various approaches to help his client, namely by making resources of the following models:
The behaviourist model, founded by John B. Watson (1878-1958), focuses on the publicly observable behavior of the individual, stating that this behavior is a response (R) to a stimulus (S) previous (model S-R). In this way, the therapist will analyze, based on dialogue, the harmful behavior that his client demonstrates in an adverse situation (stimulus). Given that the pure behaviourist model, in itself, has limitations to explain all human behaviors and their causes, since it ignores introspection as an essential part of its method, the therapist will complement his approach with other models, namely Cognitive Psychology, Humanist Psychology and Transpersonal Psychology.
To face the limitations of the radical view of Behaviourist Psychology, the Cognitive-Behavioral model emerges, which will correct the flaws of the previous model, becoming more comprehensive and profound, since it already considers the variables of the individual’s beliefs as agents of transformation of his perception and, consequently, his response to stimuli. The therapist’s analysis of how his client captures reality and processes it will help determine the beliefs he has involved in this process.
