Caspar, Franz; Ferrari, Nicola; Rusch, Mathias (26 June 2014). Facilitating Corrective Experiences (Unpublished). In: 45th Annual Meeting of the Society for psychotherapy Research. Copenhagen, Denmark. 25.06.-28.06.2014.

That corrective experiences are a central aspect of change in psychotherapy, is well established. As part of the Penn State discussion group under the guidance of Hill & Castonguay, Caspar & Berger have proposed a neural network/connectionist model as a basis for conceptualizing corrective experiences. The study to be presented here examines the conditions under which corrective experiences occur, with a particular focus on the therapeutic relationship. The findings show that in line with the models often a combination of relaxing factors (primarily the therapeutic relationship) and triggers increasing tension are required to make a corrective experience happen.
