Abstract

This clinical and theoretical paper discusses the broad areas of similatity and overlap that exist between behavior therapy and psychoanalytically oriented psychotherapy. It opens with a fantasy of the origins of anxiety and of psychotherapy followed by some historical and contemporary definitions from both points of view. A final common pathway of theory and technique is suggested and illustrated with two case vignettes.

"Anyone who wants to make a living from the treatment of nervous patients must clearly be able to do something to help them."1
