Social Context and Psychotherapy


Comment by Philip Lichtenberg

Salonia locates personal functioning within one’s larger social existence, including one’s place in history.

He places psychological theories within the history of ideas ... shows how early theory of Gestalt Theory ... emphasizes claims to individuality and personal self-regulation. ... he adroitly notes that now we must attend to self-regulation of relationships ... he suggests we go beyond “basic personality” in a society to a “Basic Relational Model” that the society promotes. ... Salonia places mental health and psychopathology within the relational model. ... “contact competency” differentiates these aspects of personal functioning very well.
